Sewage Plant Changes Community

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of SEWAGE PLANT CHANGES COMMUNITY There is a sewage plant near my home which over the years has been a problem to residents around the place especially during rainy season . It floods and allot of smell has been coming from it. Mosquitoes got breeding grounds and many were infected with malaria. The water hyacinth then sprung up which catapulted the whole sewage plant. When the government came in it app rooted all the water hyacinth in the plant and reconstructed it newly. New conduit pipes were laid and the channeling wa s properly done.The sewage was treated and is continually being treated at the moment to prevent mosquitoes and bad odor to the people. The problem comes to the outlets which leads to a stream that covers a large river, fish and other water animals will be harmed by these chemicals that are being channeled into a river and no precautionary measure is being taken.

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of Don't judge a book by it's cover It was during one of the fine days that we were out for a field work out mathare area where we were going to help out fellow youths in building up their own income generating activity. but to reach the area we had to cross over a wide stream of water and in this case it was a full of sower water meaning if you would trip and fall into the water you may get infected by the dirty water around the area there were youths who were busy cooking their "changaa" a brew famous in slums and if you would look at them you would say they are people who can not offer assistance but rather would harm one but they prooved us wrong by assisting us to cross over to the other side of the stream which saw us safe to where we were going thus changed our attitude towards them at the end of the day they also have a sense of care and love towards others what they do it's just their work.
