We believe every resident in Kenya has a fundamental right to access clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene.
We work in Bomet County, Kenya, home to 1 million people and one of the most underserved and least resourced areas of the country. Here, 2 out of 3 people don't have clean water, over half don’t have safe toilets and children don’t have access to basic hygiene education.
Most people live in rural communities and get by using their land to grow what they can and by selling anything extra they have at the market. Women and children spend hours every day walking to collect water, which is often dirty, or to find a safe place to go to the toilet. Dirty water and poor hygiene spread disease, meaning even more time is lost to sickness - time that could have been spent on work or education.
Through helping children and their families to realise their right to clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene, your support will save lives, improve education, empower women and girls and strengthen livelihoods.
