Challenge

Water is a basic necessity for life. Unfortunately not all water is safe for human consumption. Water from contaminated sources causes numerous diseases and untimely death. Currently, 65 % of the target population in Nyeri fetch water from unprotected rivers, springs, ponds, and traditional hand dug wells respectively. Surface water resources in the project areas are not safe and sufficient for human and livestock consumption, exposing the people to water borne diseases

Solution

The project will enable 200 households access clean water for domestic and agricultural use reducing acute cases of water borne diseases ,and promoting food security in the community.Training on water safety will give them responsibility in managing their water supply and promoting hygiene and sanitation practices in their village.

Long-Term Impact

The project will improve the health status, reduce women work load and provide time to get engaged in agricultural and other income generating activities. It also reduces the medication costs. In general it will increase the overall production and productivity of the Community.
