Kenya has since confirmed several cases of coronavirus, with over 200,000 cases reported across the globe, the situation might be worse in informal settlements where access to clean water is a challenge. Informal settlement is often characterized by overcrowding which might makes it easy for people to be infected by the disease.
The project will construct hand washing stations in Kibra slum in addition to raising awareness on Covid19. The hand washing stations will be made by locally assembled materials, equipped with water and soap. The stations will be strategically constructed in places where there is overcrowding.
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 covid19. In addition, the project will also set up permanent hand washing stations in some public spaces in Kibra slum.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Educate 500 Youths from Kibera Slum in Kenya. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
