WASH Alliance program Kenya

Kenya

Titre : WASH Alliance program Kenya

Pays : Kenya

Date/Durée : 2011 – 2015

Descriptif
With the focus of the Dutch WASH alliance being on sustainability, the Kenya program focuses at improving technical and financial sustainability by introducing innovative and low-cost technologies. With those low-cost technologies being available through the local private sector, both cost of installation and repair of (subsidised) water points will be reduced. When combined with (micro) finance options, communities and individual households can be stimulated to work towards self supply of water, reducing the role for government and NGO’s as providers of water points.
