Clean Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH)

Clean water is essential to survival, but so many communities suffer with contaminated water that leads to sickness, or are unable to afford clean water at all. We provide very low-cost water to the Kibera community (find out why in our FAQs section ) as well as water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) education facilitated by community health workers. Through a multi-faceted approach, we not only provide accessible, affordable clean water and sanitary pit latrines, but we can keep communities healthy through hygiene education.

 

In 2016, we launched our innovative aerial piping system which allows us to reach even more people in Kibera. The aerial pipes connect to ten water kiosks throughout Kibera, allowing clean water to flow through pipes in the air – without fear of tampering and contamination.

 

Our water tanks, connected to a network of water kiosks, and our community-managed pit latrines provided clean water and basic sanitation to over 11,000 Kibera residents in 2016. With our aerial piping system, we aim to reach over 27,000 people in 2017 with clean water alone.
