WASH Alliance Kenya seeks to stimulate linkages and strategic partnership among state and non-state WASH actors in enhancing their response towards the safe WASH needs of poor and marginalized Kenyans. We harness the energy and expertise of communities, NGOs, national and local governments and the private sector. With our member organizations, we advocate for change while facilitating local solutions for the millions of people who lack access to safe WASH services.
Focus areas on sanitation include community sensitization and Community Led Total Sanitation with a goal of making communities 100% Open-Defecation Free. Additionally, we provide rural water supply through rainwater harvesting technologies. We build capacity and train schoolchildren on appropriate sanitation and hygiene practices to foster behaviour change. We also seek to stimulate increased investments in WASH through a WASH Financing.
We support the government in formulation and dissemination of policies while also building capacity of WASH-sector players to be able to implement the government policies and priorities.
Our work is always focused on achieving sustainable results with special attention on community involvement and active participation in every step. We recognize the interdependencies between water, energy, food security and climate change.
In a period of 5 years we have reduced the costs per person to get access to WASH from €82 to €74.
