Introduction

Safe Water & AIDS Project (SWAP) uses an integrated entrepreneurial approach addressing a number of public health issues by working with already existing community structures. SWAP has been operating in Western Kenya since 2005 with public health programs and research contributing towards the achievement of sustainable development goals.

SWAP’s vision is to see a healthy and empowered community where everyone enjoys high quality of life.

SWAP’s mission is to provide innovative solutions for improved health and economic status of our communities

Background Information

Sondu Water Enterprise is located at Sondu in Kisumu County, bordering Kericho, Nyamira and Homabay Counties in Western Kenya. The population residing in Sondu largely depend on the river source water for domestic use, which is highly turbid and contaminated. The river traverses three counties thus increasing contamination along its channel before emptying into Lake Victoria. Laboratory tests on microbiological quality have revealed that the source has high coliform count and fecal contamination.

Maji Safi Kiosk

The Safe Water Enterprise was launched in July 2016. This was a collaborative initiative between Skyjuice Foundation (Australia) and Siemens Stiftung (Germany) in partnership with SWAP. Through this intervention the surrounding community members now have access to safe water, which has significantly reduced waterborne diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid and amoeba and as such reduced morbidity and mortality especially in children under five.

Activities

Water sales

Sale of water continued during this reporting period. However, the sales in April and were low due to the onset of the rainy season. The monthly water sales were KES. 14690 in February, KES. 10,625 in March and KES. 11,130 in April.

To help in promoting water sales, 100 clean water jericans were introduced from Siemens Foundation. Each of the Jericans goes for KES. 200 and are sold at the water kiosk to local community members. Therefore, the jericans will help in encouraging local community members to use clean safe water from the water kiosk and collect and store this in a clean storage vessel.

                                          

Monitoring

Continued support through frequent visits to the water kiosk has ensured sustained quality of work and operations through offering feedback to the CBO. Also, water quality monitoring was done led by SWAP’s lab Manager Jared Oremo.

Partnerships and networking

On 3/05/2019 SWAP’s Monitoring and Evaluation manager Penina Ogendo attended a GlobalGiving meeting. This forum was aimed at sharing experiences by projects that are fundraising through GlobalGiving and she managed to share about the Sondu Maji Safi Kiosk. Other major issues that emerged during the meeting were:

  • Introduction of the revised GlobalGiving outlook and how to navigate the online site.
  • Plans to introduce local fundraising system in partnership with Safaricom’s MPESA money transfer system. Hopefully this will encourage local donors.
  • Most local donors give money only once and not repeatedly

                                      

Way Forward

  • Training

Twenty Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) will be trained on health marketing and sanitation by Siemens Stiftung. The CHVs manage the water kiosk on a rotating basis.

  • Technical support

The Siemens Stiftung will continue offering technical support to the Community Based Organization. This support will focus on the water pumping system from the river.

  • Promotion of Water sales

To ensure sustainability of the water kiosk, members of the CBO continue selling branded water jericans to promote use of clean and safe water within the community.

  • Handing over to the community

There are plans to fully hand over management of the water kiosk to the CBO by the end of 2019

Background Information

Sondu Water Enterprise is located at Sondu in Kisumu County, bordering Kericho, Nyamira and Homabay Counties in Western Kenya. The population residing in Sondu largely depend on the river source water for domestic use, which is highly turbid and contaminated. The river traverses three counties thus increasing contamination along its channel before emptying into Lake Victoria. Laboratory tests on microbiological quality have revealed that the source has high coliform count and fecal contamination.

The river is used for bathing, washing and drinking. Animals use the same river. Raw sewage and run off water finds is way in the river as well. Diarrheal illness is still one of the leading causes in the area and it has been prone to cholera outbreaks. Women and children spend valuable time collecting water from the river, which is unsafe for human consumption.

There is a piped water scheme in the area which is not reliable and the supply is intermittent. Occasionally, the electricity supply is disconnected due to failure in settlement of the bills and due to drought there has been frequent rationing of water supply.

Other use surface water for household use and drinking. This has put especially young children at high risk of diarrheal illness and mortality.

The Solution

The Safe Water Enterprise was launched in July 2016. This was a collaborative initiative between Skyjuice Foundation (Australia) and Siemens Stiftung (Germany) in partnership with SWAP. Through this intervention the surrounding community members now have access to safe water, which has significantly reduced waterborne diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, typhoid and amoeba and as such reduced morbidity and mortality especially in children under five.

The technology is Skyhydrant Filtration. Raw water is pumped from the river and collected in a water tank after which it is filtered through the membranes of the skyhydrant filtration unit. It is then channeled to outlets and sold to the communities at an affordable rate. Women collect water in plastic vessels of 20 liters and carry on their head to their houses. Others use bicycles or motorbikes to transport water. Traders collect and use handcarts to resell in the community.

To take care of the sanitation SWAP built a public toilet since there was none at the Sondu Market where the Sondu Water Enterprise is established. Community members can use this toilet at a fee, which is to generate some income to facilitate the procurement of toilet tissue, cleaning materials and hand washing soap. Next to the toilet there is a hand washing station which is used for demonstration.

Beneficiaries of the Sondu Water Enterprise

  • Traders at Sondu market
  • Water Vendors on motorcycle or handcart owners
  • School going children in nearby schools
  • Residents/tenants within Sondu and its surroundings
  • Patients at nearby health facilities
  • Community Health Volunteers

Partnerships and Achievements

SWAP has established strong partnerships with various Water and Sanitation partners who each played a role and made invaluable contributions with supplies, training, capacity building and marketing.

We realized the need for more marketing of the service and received from Siemens Stiftung 150 calendars to market the enterprise. The Sondu Water Enterprise was captured on the front page of the calendar. These calendars were distributed to loyal costumers, the community health volunteers, members of the Community Based Organization, traders on the market among others.

KWAHO – Kenya Water for Health Organization – supported further with training in December 2018 to local community health volunteers to assist to market the enterprise to the local community. Following this we noted an increase in water sales.

SWAP provided continues mentoring and on the job training on the use and service of the Skyhydrant filter and collecting of water samples for testing in the SWAP Water Lab.

Siemens provided further technical support, after the electrical pumping system failed. There was need for a new electrical pump which was provided and connected by Siemens.

KIWASH – Kenya Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project provided a training to the CBO members and the water operator in November 2018 on the operations, maintenance and monthly monitoring of sales.

In February 2019 an induction workshop was organized by KIWASH for WASH partners. This was attended by Jared Oremo, SWAP Lab Manager and Supervisor of the Sondu Water Enterprise and George Nyanji, the Sondu Water Enterprise Chairman. The training was on basic accounting systems and billing.

Challenges

In January 2019, the main pipes connected to the Skyhydrant system and water tanks were stolen and vandalized. SWAP replaced these with income from Global Giving and reinforced the security.

SWAP Water Laboratory

The water lab at SWAP was established in 2007 for research purposes. Initially the lab could only provide bacteriological water testing, but later also offered full chemical testing after investing in more equipment and training of staff following international standards.

SWAP continued to do regular water quality testing of the water sold to the communities. This to ensure that the water is free from pathogens and fit for human consumption. Water testing was done in SWAP’s water lab which can perform bacteriological and chemical tests. To keep this control measure SWAP ensured that the CBO members and the water operator is well trained on hygiene promotion and service and maintenance of the Skyhydrant filter as well as costumer relations.

Way forward

SWAP is working with the Sondu administrative leaders and the Sondu Maji Safi CBO to eventually hand over ownership of the enterprise after it is sustainable. In 2018 the service has been on high demand due to the drought as a result of climate change, whereby people come from far to access the service.

The plan is to do the handing over by the end of 2019. SWAP will work with the various partners to continue to build the capacity of the Sondu Maji Safi CBO members and the water operator towards sustainability.

Sondu Water Enterprise will need to renew its business permit, which is paid to the County Government of Kisumu.

SWAP seeks still more funding through Global Funding to support the process of handing over. It requires more investment in training such as business skills, record keeping, group dynamics, financial management, marketing. SWAP would still need to support the regular water testing for quality control

Partnerships and Achievements

SWAP has established strong partnerships with various Water and Sanitation partners who each played a role and made invaluable contributions with supplies, training, capacity building and marketing.


SWAP connected the Sondu Water Enterprise to the Kenya power. Having electricity made it easier to pump the water instead of using generators. It also created an opportunity to start a new income generating activity such as charging mobile phones. In the area where there is no electricity community members rely on others to charge their mobile phones which is done at a fee. So revenue increased with income from water sales, income from toilet use and charging of mobile phones. Siemens supported the installation of a new pump and PVC piping.

The Sondu Maji Safi team overseeing the operations at the Sondu Water Enterprise held elections and registered with the Ministry of East Africa Community Labor and Social Protection as “Sondu Maji Safi Community Based Organization (CBO) Maji Safi in Swahili means clean water. The registration is part of the process of handing over the management of Sondu Water Enterprise to the community. Already some initial training of the CBO was done but more capacity building is needed. This handing over is an ongoing process to enhance sustainability which will be facilitated in stages. Some of the administrative leaders are members of this CBO. They have 14 members, including officials such as Chair Person, Secretary and Treasurer.

Siemens and SWAP held a joined meeting with the CBO members and key points of discussion were:

  • Sondu Maji Safi CBO is now registered so they are a legal entity
  • Sondu Water Enterprise must become self-reliant without further assistance from SWAP or SIEMENS
  • Sondu Water Enterprise should belong to the community and the community must be ready to take full responsibility.
  • The CBO Members must aim to attract more customers and to sell clean treated water to the surrounding areas.
  • Ownership of the community must be seen within the group for the success of both the enterprise and the CBO.
  • SIEMENS and SWAP are ready to work with the Sondu Maji Safi CBO and introduce more products only if there is commitments and dedication of the group members.
  • The CBO members were advised to think of other projects and income generating activities to could be involved in to attract more costumers

Kenya Water for Health Organization – KWAHO – KWAHO was engaged by Siemens to support the hygiene promotion and community mobilization to help market the Sondu Water Enterprise.

Kenya Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene -KIWASH – is a USAID funded program which has expressed interest to support Sondu water enterprise. The Water Operator and SWAP employee supervising the Sondu Water Enterprise participated in a training and together worked on a business plan which is shared with KIWASH. They offered support and ongoing capacity building to help the Enterprise run more efficient towards sustainability in the near future.

SWAP continued to do regular water quality testing of the water sold to the communities. This to ensure that the water is free from pathogens and fit for human consumption. Water testing was done in SWAP’s water lab which can perform bacteriological and chemical tests. To keep this control measure SWAP ensured that the CBO members and the water operator is well trained on hygiene promotion and service and maintenance of the Skyhydrant filter as well as costumer relations.

1.0 Introduction:

Safe Water and AIDS Project (SWAP) is a Kenyan registered NGO, with its headquarters in Kisumu and implements public health programs, research and emergency response in 6 counties in Western Kenya.  SWAP aims to improve the health and socio-economic status of vulnerable communities through disease prevention, and socio-economic empowerment. SWAP’s mission is to improve the quality of life of the vulnerable population by supporting them to develop profitable health oriented micro-enterprises. In partnership with the Sondu community members, the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Water, Siemens Stiftung and Skyjuice Foundation,

SWAP received the sky-hydrant filtration unit from Sky-juice Foundation and an initial start-up funding of USD 2,416.80 on January 27th 2016 and ongoing technical support from Siemens Stiftung. With this support SWAP established the Sondu Water Enterprise which was formally launched in July 2016.

2.0 Problem Statement:

Sondu is a community with high burden of disease and with diarrheal illness as one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality, specifically among children under 5. This is due to poor water and sanitation practices and limited access to improved services. The Sondu, river which communities use to draw water for household purposes is highly contaminated. The improved water supplies in Sondu are limited with irregular and interrupted services. There was no public toilet in the market area where the Sondu Water Enterprise is located, prior to SWAP establishing a public toilet. The main objective of the Safe Water Enterprise is to increase access to clean and safe drinking water and sanitation for the vulnerable communities and as a result to reduce morbidity and mortality. The enterprise is managed by a local water operator and is run under the supervision and mentorship of a water committee and SWAP.

Sondu Water Enterprise

3.0. Capacity building- KIWASH partnership

SWAP established a partnership with KIWASH, the Kenya Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project. KIWASH collaborates with water and sanitation service providers to develop bankable business plans, improve operations, and facilitate access to financing. There was monthly monitoring of the operations done by KIWASH, training of the kiosk operator on the daily recording on site, monthly recording and on the job training on how to reduce water losses at the kiosk. The enterprise was mandated to develop a business plan. The enterprise aims to increase its volume of sales and as a result generate more income. Currently our monthly revenue from water sales is about USD 140 during dry season and 40 to 60 USD during rainy season.

4.0. Technical and Operational Strategic Objectives 2018 - 2020 - See attachment

5.0. Installation of electrical water pump

Siemens Stiftung funded the installation of a water electric pump, which will help in increased volumes of water supply. This has increased the water sales and reduced the waiting time for collection of water. The picture below shows technical team working on the installation.

6.0. Monthly water Quality testing

The purpose of the monthly quality assurance and testing is to ensure that the water provided to the community meets the highest quality standards test. For this reason, monthly samples of the water at the main taps are taken for quality control and analysis. This is done at SWAP’s water lab. SWAP is able to do bacteriological and full chemical analyses. The test below shows the most recent test done and its results.

Bacteriological Tests

Escherichia Coli is abundant in human and animal faces; the absence of E-coli or thermo tolerant coli form bacteria indicates that the water is safe for human consumption and meets WHO standards. - See Attachment

  • Traders at Sondu market
  • Water Vendors on motorcycle or handcart owners
  • School going children in nearby schools
  • Residents/tenants within Sondu and its surroundings
  • Patients at nearby health facilities
  • Community Health Volunteers

 Recent Achievements and Partnerships

SWAP hired a new Water Operator who was selected by the Water Kiosk Committee. She started her contract in March 2018 after the previous water operator resigned. There is still demand from the community who have seen the benefits and health impact of the Sondu Water Enterprise.

A water kiosk committee was established in March 2018 comprising of 9 members to enhance ownership of the Water Enterprise. They were trained by Siemens and their role is to offer security, technical support and to help mobilize communities to utilize the services.

Kenya Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene -KIWASH – is a USAID funded program which has offered support Sondu water enterprise. After training of the water operator and water kiosk committee members, they now offer monthly monitoring on how sales records are kept and on the job training and mentoring.

Siemens who provided seed funds and technical support during the initial start-up of the Sondu Water Enterprise financially supported training facilitated by Kenya Water for Health Organization in April 2018 of 35 Community Health Volunteers who are engaged to visit households, schools and clinics around the Sondu Water Enterprise for social marketing and hygiene promotion. The objective is for them to increase awareness about the Sondu Water Enterprise and to provide health education including demonstrations on hand washing. Reaching the community members will reduce preventable diarrheal illness which is still one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality. It will further increase use of the Sondu Water Enterprise, with increased income and potential sustainability.

Siemens further in April 2018 financially supported the training of teachers at 5 surrounding primary schools, who were using other sources of water. The training was facilitated by KWAHO and SWAP did water testing of the school water sources. The outcome of these tests was that the water was not suitable for human consumptions, containing pathogens such as E Coli and Coliform.

On 11th May, the new Executive Director of KWAHO paid a visit to the water kiosk and SWAP lab. KWAHO has requested SWAP to test 5 water samples where the current intervention to market the water kiosk is ongoing.

The cost of pumping water from the river using a fuel generator remained high. For that reason we opted to have electricity connected. This was successfully done in May 2018. Siemens will provide an electrical pump, but is waiting for the water levels to come down in order to permanently place a pump at the river side.

Challenges

Kenya the past few months experienced excessive rainfall with many rivers bursting its banks and flooding as a results. This has caused a lot of communities to evacuate their houses and stay at improvised camps. Houses and crops have been destroyed and an increase in water borne diseases due to overflow of toilets and families living in shelters without sanitary facilities.

This has also reduced the sales and operations at the Sondu Water Enterprise. Many families opt to use rain water during the rainy season, since it is free.

The Sondu Water Enterprise is not yet fully sustainable, especially during rainy season, because of low sales and low income as a result. However with the increased mobilization and training and the rainy season nearly ending, we are hopeful and believe that the center has the potential to be sustainable. We have increased partnerships all providing support and worked on community ownership through the establishment of the Water Kiosk Committee.
