Summary

Water and sanitation are essential for life and health, but they are also essential for a dignified life, empowerment and prosperity. Water and sanitation are human rights, fundamental to every human life. In Kenya, poor sanitation and hygiene as well as unequal access to safe drinking water, in the informal settlements, slums and the rural villages, make thousands of children very sick and at risk of death. Many households spend thousands of shillings in and out of hospital every other day.

Challenge

Only 30% of Kenyans have access to improved sanitation, that is, the use of sanitation facilities that hygienically separate excreta from human contact. This means that approximately 30 million Kenyans are still using unsafe sanitation methods like rudimentary types of latrines, and almost six million are defecating in the open. In the rural areas, people continue to defecate in the open (15% against 3% in urban areas). It is more daunting as urban growth outstrips the provision basic services.

Improved access to safe clean drinking water, sanitation and good hygiene practices targeting households and learning institution. Facilitate access to sanitation facilities to considering safe waste management along the entire sanitation service chain, from waste generation to disposal or re-use. Advocacy through peer to peer conversations Menstrual Hygiene management through schools and the community
