Water & Sanitation

The lack of adequate WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) services negatively impacts the well-being and productivity of Kenya’s growing population; WASH-related diseases and associated conditions (e.g., anemia, dehydration and malnutrition are the top causes of under-five hospitalization and mortality, and over 50% of hospital visits in Kenya stem from water, sanitation and hygiene-related illnesses.

Holistic WASH Program

SHOFCO goes beyond clean, affordable water. While our 100,000 liter water tower serves as the largest access point to clean water in Kibera, our cutting edge bio-latrines, community toilets and hygiene and sanitation education initiatives define a holistic WASH approach. Working in close concert with the JJJ Clinic, SHOFCO’s Clean Water and Sanitation initiative is prepared to nurture healthy, productive individuals.
