Résumé partiel
Access to water resources is a whole family concern, finding safe and clean water especially in arid and semi-arid lands (ASAL) in Kenya is a daily challenge for young boys, mothers and daughters who in most homes are tasked with sourcing and providing water for their family. Basing on this, the purpose of this study was to assess how community participation contributes to the sustainability of donor funded boreholes in ASAL areas in Kenya and especially in Pokot South Sub-County. More specifically, the study sought to establish the community’s cost sharing efforts regarding sustainability of donor funded boreholes, to assess the level of community involvement in sustainability of donor funded boreholes in Pokot South Sub-County, and to establish the community organization structures put in place in relation to sustainability of donor-funded boreholes. This study is of benefit to the Pokot South Sub-County residents, donors and the government agencies as it sheds light on the mechanisms available as far as community participation and sustainability of the donor funded boreholes in the Sub- County is concerned. The study was justified on grounds that issues pertaining access to water resources especially in ASAL areas has not been focused so much despite them forming part of SDGs Based on the objectives of the study, a descriptive research design was adopted.
