The Water Services Trust Fund (WSTF) is a Kenyan State Corporation created as a part of the reform of the Kenyan water sector. It has been mandated by the Water Act 2002 to finance the poor and underserved communities in water and sanitation services as well as stressed catchment areas to improve the water resources management. The unique role of the Water Services Trust Fund (WSTF) is resources mobilization and provision of financial assistance in the water sector with emphasis on the clear targeting of its resources. It mobilizes its resources from the Government of Kenya, bilateral and multilateral organizations, the private sector, foundations and individuals. It collaborates with the Water Resources Management Authority (WRMA), Water Service Boards (WSBs), Water Service Providers (WSPs), Community Based Organizations (CBOs) and Water Resource Users Associations (WRUAs) to support poor disadvantaged communities in articulating their priority needs and thereafter, preparing their own proposals for grants funding. OBJECTIVES OF WSTF 1. Mobilize adequate resources nationally and internationally to enhance provision of water services. 2. Develop and apply systems that ensure proper targeting, financing, implementation and sustainability of water and sanitation projects. 3. Establish and nurture partnerships with stakeholders. 4. Continuously strengthen the WSTF institutional capacity and enhance staff skills for effective and efficient service delivery. 5. Facilitate capacity building of agents to deliver on the provision of water services. WSTF operates in target locations nationally in the 8 River Basins in Kenya which are under 8 corresponding Water Service Boards (WSBs)namely: Lake Victoria North, Lake Victoria South, Rift Valley, Tana, Northern, Tanathi, Coast and Athi. Operations of WSTF fall under three main Windows: Urban Poor Concept (UPC), Community Project Cycle (CPC) and Water Resources Users Association (WRUA) Development Cycle (WDC).
