Replenish Africa Initiative Improves Sanitation Access in Githima, Kenya
September 18, 2020
The Replenish Africa Initiative (RAIN) partnered with Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor to construct a 1.5 kilometer sewer network in the Githima community of Nakuru, Kenya’s fourth largest city. Prior to project implementation, Githima community members relied on unsafe forms of sanitation, as waste often flowed into open drains running in alleys between houses, which impacted residents’ health. By improving Githima’s sanitation access, the project directly improves the health, dignity, privacy, and safety of its members. In Kenya, RAIN has measurably impacted a total of 1,814,047 people through 12 projects.
