In this semi-arid region of Kenya, water is a scarce commodity. A negligible percentage of households have access to clean water and water from the wells can be unreliable. Focus is given to the improvement of existing boreholes, provision of water storage facilities for the schools, and piping water to points for easy community access. These projects help to reduce the incidence of water borne diseases.
An awareness has been made for pit latrines and need to have at least one toilet per homestead.
