WaterAid is an international NGO focused exclusively on ensuring equitable access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education (WASH) for the world’s poorest communities. Formed in 1981 we have been working in water, sanitation and hygiene for over 30 years. To date we have reached 17.5 million people with safe water and 12.9 million people with improved sanitation. WaterAid works in 27 countries globally, primarily in sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and Central America. Each country operates a national WaterAid Country Programme. These are supported by our offices in the UK, USA, Sweden and Australia. WaterAid previously worked in Kenya from the mid 1980s until the early 1990s but due to strong development indicators it was decided that our efforts could be better focused elsewhere. In 2008 WaterAid conducted a scoping study in Kenya and decided that, there were compelling reasons to return. The re-establishment of WaterAid in Kenya - registering, recruiting staff and setting up an office - began in 2009. Given the early stages of WaterAid’s presence in Kenya the WaterAid Kenya has a comparatively limited scope of operations. In 2012/2013 WaterAid Kenya will primarily be focusing on: 1) Building an effective organizational and physical presence in Kenya 2) Positioning WaterAid Kenya as an active player in the Kenyan civil society networks for water, sanitation and hygiene. 3) Deepening linkages with government ministries in charge of water, sanitation and hygiene education, water service boards, national regulatory, resourcing institutions and key donor and funding partners like UNICEF and World Bank. 4) Develop a broad strategic direction that will lead to new programmes of work commencing 2013-14. As WaterAid Kenya is in the early stages of establishing a presence we are only working with a select few partners. WaterAid Kenya is not currently looking for new partners. For more information on WaterAid Kenya and/or specific areas of work please use contact details listed.

Project Results

2013-14 is planned to be the year for WaterAid Kenya to re-launch itself within the Kenyan WASH sector. We will begin initiatives working at national level to influence WASH policy; influence and improve governance; promote accountability and sector performance and work within the framework of the new Kenyan national constitutional dispensation.
