Titre : Safe Water for Wajir - WASH promotion through Makaror Mixed Day Technical Secondary School

Pays/Région : Kenya

Dates (prévues) : Début/Fin 01-Jan-2016 // 31-Dec-2020

Contexte
Wajir County is one of the poorest of Kenya. The area is marginalised, a drought prone region. Scabies and other dirt infections due to lack of WASH are endemic in Makaror. The large scale solutions for Wajir town (sewerage and waterpiping) have failed, so far. The suburbs won´t profit. The proposed WASH promotion pilot is promoted through this pilot as a help-yourself alternative. That could be relevant for the town as well if large scale GOK projects fail. The catsystem is still the most used sanitation method.

Résumé
WASH promotion in Makaror a suburb of Wajir Town through technical education and demonstration of WASH. Most wells have ecoli pollution. Lining wells helps. Closure and pump installation + household filters is better. Combination with Ecosan is an adequate solution. MMDTSS is the best technical and users promoter available.

Objectifs
