Clean water is essential to survival, but so many communities suffer from contaminated water that leads to sickness or is 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 water kiosks throughout Kibera, allowing clean water to flow through pipes in the air – without fear of tampering and contamination.

In 2023, SHOFCO’s 41 clean water kiosks served 37,541 users and provided an average of 200,000 liters of clean water daily. Additionally, 28,670 students were reached with hygiene promotion messaging in Kibera primary schools.
