We believe every resident in Kenya has a fundamental right to access clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene.

 

Our purpose is to collaborate with the Kenyan government, local businesses and communities, to transform the provision of clean water, sanitation and good hygiene in Bomet County - one of the most challenging and least resourced areas in the country.

 

We take an integrated approach to all our work, using partnerships, education, training and advocacy to create sustainable change for Bomet’s 1 million residents.

 

  • Partnerships – we facilitate the provision of clean water supplies and safe toilets for communities, schools and hospitals

  • Education – we provide essential education to school children on hygiene and menstrual health.

  • Training – we provide training to local government, businesses, contractors and communities so they can embed the systemic improvements to water, sanitation and hygiene over the long term.

  • Advocacy – we work with the local community to advocate for change in planning, environmental and health policy to secure the long-term viability of safe water and hygiene provision.

 

We monitor our impact by regularly collecting data on the provision of clean water, sanitation and good hygiene. This integrated approach ultimately allows the 1 million residents of Bomet to improve their health, education and livelihoods.

Impact Report_Map.png

Thanks to the support of amazing people like you, we’ve reached over 200,000 people in Kenya with clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene since 2007. This is just the start, we’re now scaling up to reach the entire county of Bomet.

 

We know we can be part of the long term solution because we’ve used our experience on the ground to design and roll out locally appropriate approaches, build partnerships with MPs in the Parliament of Kenya and become the first international charity to have a direct co-funding agreement with the national government’s grassroots Constituency Development Fund.

“We are much appreciative of our partnership with Dig Deep since 2017. Their construction and project supervision is the best and they also train teachers, pupils and community members on menstrual hygiene management which is a big problem in Kenya. Together, we are working hand in hand to enable our community to have access to clean water, safe sanitation and good hygiene."
