Improved water supply and sanitation, and better management of water resources, can boost countries’ economic growth and can contribute greatly to poverty reduction. To ensure access to water and sanitation for all.

The organization focuses on enhancing use of reusable sanitary towels for teenage girls in the rural areas, creating awareness to the pastoral community encouraging them to build pit latrines so as to enhance hygiene. Sensitization is carried out in schools to encourage children to practice hygienic practices through hand washing and adopting a clean environment.

Change Stories

Water is life… and not only to human beings but everything that has life. The Naretoi water project was supported by Lars Klingsbo from PMU-Interlife, who decided to race on motorcycles as from Nairobi to Naretoi location in the county of Kajiado without drinking water all the way. On arrival most of them almost collapsed due to serious thirst. That was a clear proof that water is really a necessity. The water project is to improve the general sanitation and health of the people of Naretoi since it is really a scarce commodity in the area.
