About

Kenya is among the top ten richest countries in Africa (IMF, 2015), but just under a third of its population has access to improved sanitation and 12% still defecate in the open (WHO/UNICEF, 2015). 

SHARE's work in Kenya has focussed primarily on peri-urban settlements in Kisumu, western Kenya. Building on a project looking at urban WASH disparities from Phase I, our partners, GLUK, are leading the Safe Start project - designing, implementing and evaluating the impact of an intervention to explore WASH and food hygiene in low-income settlements.

 

BUILDING KNOWLEDGE. IMPROVING THE WASH SECTOR.

SHARE contributes to achieving universal access to effective, sustainable and equitable sanitation and hygiene by generating evidence to improve policy and practice worldwide.
