A water tank, hygiene packs and a celebration!!!

Clean water at last!
Clean water at last!

Kambi ya Turkana Pad Drive Initiative is a partnership between Life Bloom Services International and Red Cross Naivasha Branch, that is set to run for a period of three years. The project will be ongoing and is envisioned to address not only menstrual hygiene, women empowerment, community resilience and sustainability but also teenage pregnancy/motherhood, Sexual Gender Based Violence and gender equity within the society.

For the 3rd quarter running, Life Bloom and Red Cross joined the community of more than 500 persons are squarters and live on a piece of ranch land that quit operations in the 90s. The community, elderly parents who worked at the ranch and their mainly offsprings, have no school, medical center, water, electricity and even adequate latrines. 

The first visit by Life Bloom and Red Cross happened in June 2020, second visit for sanitary hygiene packs distribution was in Oct 2020. The third one with a water tank (to harvest clean rain water), sanitary hygiene packs for 100 girls and young women was on March 8th 2021. It was a great celebration as the water tank arrived, it was placed safely on the raised concrete stand that the community had prepared, and the water bowzer poured water into the tank, and the community members turned on the tap to draw water! For the first time they had water in the neighbourhood. The community members committed to making monetary savings and contributing towards the bowzer (water tank lorry) delivering clean water for the community. After being capacity built by Life Bloom staff, the women have formed and registered two saving groups to initiate businesses, and look forward to accessing affirmatative funds for business growth from the government of Kenya, which are only accessed by registered groups. 

Thank you all for your generous donation which has made this possible. We look forward for more donations  from our partners towards supporting this communit in the next quarter visit (May 2021). Together we support Kambi Turkana towards social-economic growth and sustainability.
