The final ACF Annual Report is now available.
Over the past year, we’ve been working in just three areas:
- In Nairobi, work focused on assisting landlords in Kibera to upgrade their latrines to pour-flush standard and connect them up to the sewer network (part of which was previously constructed as part of ACF’s activities). Over 170 landlords were able to connect in the past year and improve the lives of around 11,000 tenants, who now have cleaner toilets that bring them greater dignity and without any worry of the toilet getting full and there being no money to empty it. The cleanliness of neighbourhoods have also improved as a result of avoiding emptying and dumping the sludge in inappropriate ways.
- In Nakuru, Kenya (a new area added for this final year), improved access to water became a reality for 23,500 residents in Mwariki low-income area. Network repairs enabled NRW reduction and better services as a result and prepaid water dispensers enabled 24-hour access to clean water at a controlled and cheap price (set by the company).
- In Kumasi, two WASH blocks were built in schools to enable improved access to water, sanitation and hygiene for many school children and reduce absent time from school as a result of water-borne infections and (in the case of girls) challenges faced during their period. You can read more here.
We’ll be posting a summary of all programme achievements and learning very soon. Watch this space!
