About the project

The Challenge

Water scarcity and unhygienic conditions gravely frustrate education, apart from fueling typhoid and cholera in Taita Taveta. Action Aid seeks to better the lives of residents in this county by improving accessibility to water and sanitation. They have projects targeting women and young girls who feel the biggest impact of drought and poverty.

The Intervention

The Safaricom Foundation partnered with Action Aid to facilitate the Kangemi Mlilo Water Project by establishing a pipeline from Makurati spring in Ronge Juu to Kangemi village.

The Impact

Though initially faced with difficulties including land and county boundaries, the project has been successful so far, impacting close to 3799 people. Ten villages now have a constant water supply, thanks to the kiosks established in Mwangoko, Kati, Kisima, Mwambengu, Mazerenyi, Mtungunyi, Mlilo, Shambi Isanu, Talenyi, and Kangemi.
