Making a people-powered change
In Kenya we’re empowering and protecting communities with a clever combination of improved access to sanitation and better hygiene education.
Kisumu is Kenya’s third largest city. Most residents live in informal settlements without access to clean water or toilet facilities, causing serious health problems.
The Ingenious Solution
Together with Comic Relief we improved water and sanitation in two of Kisumu’s slums, Nyalenda and Obunga by supporting the local community to take the lead in creating new systems and services to ensure clean, safe water and toilet facilities for everyone.
