ActionAid Kenya will facilitate KOMESI Women Network to take the management of the water project as a sustainability measure since they already have the structure in place. The current management committee will also be facilitated to conduct elections to revitalize kiosk-level management committees. The project has 7 water points.
The community will be supported to continue engaging and demanding from the county the support to protect and expand the project.
ActionAid is responding to the drought emergency in the country in various ways that includes providing food to vulnerable families, rehabilitating water points to ensure communities have portable water as well as training communities to demand for accountability by government and other players during the emergency period.
Community groups leading ActionAid’s emergency work are formed with people from a broad spectrum of the community including women and people with disability. The ‘people centered’ approach, ensures the voices of the most vulnerable are heard and responded to.
