In Kenya and the UK our teams of dedicated staff, fundraisers and local partners make the work you support possible. 

Our teams work together to achieve our vision in which no one’s opportunities are limited by not having clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene.

Bomet County Government
Bomet County Government

We have been working with Bomet County Government since 2013. The focus of our work together so far has been on our WASH in Schools programme ensuring every child in targeted sub-counties has access to clean drinking water, safe sanitation and hygiene education. This work has included developing a bespoke hygiene training curriculum tailored specially to the needs of children in the county. We also work together to scale up Community Led Total Sanitation programmes in the county.
