Clean water is a right for everyone in the entire world.Unfortunately most of the Kenyan slums do not have access clean water or even clean water storage facilities.
The vast water shortage in Kenya has been attributed to high rate of population growth in towns and cities without corresponding infrastructural development to keep pace with the rapid population growth in urban areas.
But a clear link between wealth and access to clean and safe water persists with 87 per cent of the richest households having access compared to only 48 per cent of the poorest households.
71 per cent of Kenyan households, the responsibility of collecting water is borne by either the female head of household or wife to the head of household. In a further 21 per cent of the households, the responsibility falls on children,
Distance to water points, insufficient numbers of water points and irregular supply still remain a big challenge.
Majority of Kenyan households, do not take it serious in treating their water before drinking with boiling or use of chemical disinfectants (such as WaterGuard) it is for these reasons that we seek well wishers to help us in fundraising to help in awareness creation and provide clean water storage facilities for the families in slums.
