The WASH Alliance Kenya Story
WASH Alliance Kenya is part of a global movement supported by the WASH Alliance International to improve access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) for everyone. The inception of WASH Alliance Kenya was spurred by the Dutch WASH Alliance in 2011 with financial support from the Dutch Government.
WASH Alliance Kenya is mandated to stimulate linkages and strategic partnership among state and non-state WASH actors in enhancing their response towards WASH needs of poor and vulnerable Kenyans. We harness the energy and expertise of communities, NGOs, the national government, local governments, international organizations and the private sector to sustainable WASH solutions. Together with our member organizations, we advocate for change and facilitate local solutions for the millions of people who lack access to sustainable WASH solutions.
We support institutions and form coalitions to accelerate access to WASH for all. We work directly with government agencies to strengthen national WASH programs, and we help ensure that government policies promote equity and inclusion in WASH.
Core to our mandate are equity and non-discrimination. Our programmes and partnerships address gender inequality, disability and social exclusion in the WASH sector, and beyond. Specific attention goes to the needs of women and adolescent girls.Menstrual hygiene management is also key part of our programming, aiming at breaking the silence around menstruation nationally, while ensuring change in policies.
Moving forward, our main priority remains working with the government, communities and development partners to improve the livelihoods and health of the most vulnerable members in Kenya. To effectively scale up our work and accelerate access to WASH in Kenya, we continue replicating and learning from our previous programmes while making use of economies of scale.
The WASH Alliance Kenya envisions a world in which all people have sustainable access to WASH services.
To promote an enabling environment for provision of innovative and sustainable WASH services to vulnerable groups through alliance members.
