Water, Sanitation and Hygiene website banner

The fact that Water, sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) is the subject of dedicated targets within the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 6) is a testament to its fundamental role in public health and therefore in the future of sustainable development. Access to safe water, adequate sanitation, and proper hygiene education can reduce illness and death from disease, leading to improved health, poverty reduction, and socio-economic development.

Why Water

In Kenya, 1 in 9 people still have no access to clean water. But in the communities we serve, it’s 9 out of 9 . Water is a daily and clipping challenge whereby without water you can not grow food, you can not grow healthy, you can not stay in school and you can not keep working.

Today, hope is on hold in over half of the developing Kenya’s communities without access to clean water and sanitation.




Relieves girls the burden of walking long distances in search of clean water.
Access to clean water helps them stay in school through their teenage years.


Accesses to water leads to food security. With less crop loss, hunger is reduced.
We need to replace nutrients in our bodies with a new supply every day and this is how we get fuel, providing energy for our bodies.


Safe water, clean hands healthy bodies.
Time lost to sicknesses reduced and people can get back to their work which lift themselves out of poverty.


Access to water can break the circle of poverty.
The communities we serve are ready to grow.

Finding water in Kenyan communities is a daily challenge for young girls, moms and sons. With a charitable donation of $100 today you can lift this burden.
