WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE PILOT PROJECT IN KAKAMEGA COUNTY
In July 2013, WEWASAFO initiated a six months pilot project on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
activities that focus on spring protection and water harvesting through the construction of water
tanks in schools. The activities will be carried out in schools, homes, community owned water
springs and water points. The provision of clean water will reduce the spread of communicable
diseases thus reducing the proportion of income spent on health related expenses. The activities
will alleviate poverty through the reduction in infant mortality rates and diarrhea in children and in the community. They will also contribute to increased productive time and resources that was
previously lost to preventable diseases.
