Challenge

Kenya has since confirmed over 2,000 cases of Novel Coronavirus (Covid19). In Kibera slum, over 200 cases have been confirmed. Most parts of Kibera slum lack access to clean water and sanitation facilities. Kibera slum is also characterized by overcrowding, poor drainage and lack of proper waste management systems. Should the cases of infections increase in Kibera slum, the situation might be worse for over 250,000 residents in Kibera.

Solution

The project will install hand washing stations equipped with clean soap and water in most parts of Kibera slum. The project will also ensure that the residents of Kibera have accurate information about coronavirus including where to get help in case they show any Covi19 symptoms, additionally we will support the resident by donating free face masks.

Long-Term Impact

The project will aim at setting up hand washing station in various schools in Kibra slum. It will also train teachers, students and the entire community on the importance of hand washing and general hygiene to stop the spread of diseases including covid-19. In addition, the project will also set up permanent hand washing stations in some public spaces in Kibra slum.
