  • Audience: Decision-makers from various large foundations. Problem: are we ready to submit major funding
  • Renee
  • Having a facility doesn’t guarantee success, from lack of water due to pipe blockages, water rationing, poor management, lack of understanding of what causes disease and death, lack of hygiene knowledge and practices. Following extensive surveying and comparative analysis of similar kiosks, we developed a model of what might change this situation.
  • EG: Business (SOPs, financial records)
  • From just 3 facilities over 600 in July, by January, now 5 facilities over 1000 usages/mo. With Kisinga taking off…only two that are not are Wamunyu and MSF.
  • Changesin expenses and revenue %: 55% attendant to 42% , 32% water to 43%. Clearly, selling water and using it for toilets and showers. Revenues: 69% toilet, 18% water, 13% showers  49% toilet, 30% water, 17% showers.
  • Kisinga before ~ 1400 July net margin, peaked in January 3400! More than double

  • Dr. Karen Loeb and Dr. Renée Botta University of DenverAn Academic, Rotary, and NGO cooperative project in Kibera, Kenya
  • Kenya & Kibera About 34% of Kenyans live in urban areas, with approximately 2.5 million living in Nairobi. The urban poor make up 55% of Nairobi’s total population and occupy 5% of the total residential land area. Kibera is an informal settlement situated on the southwestern part of the city of Nairobi. The square mile of Kibera comprises 11 villages and is home to at least half a million people living in slum conditions of single rooms, mostly made of mud and corrugated iron sheets.
  • Proposed Solution: Community-Run Water,Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Systems Toilet, Shower (Bathroom), and Hand Washing Facilities… …plus Water, Purifiers, and Liquid Soap Enterprises
  • Making it Work! -Liquid Soap Making in Hygiene Training Usage & Financial Record- Keeping in Business Training-Community Governance Decision-Making

  • Alternative Governance Models1. CBO – SDG Hierarchical Model: Sharing Across CBOs (Kisinga)2. CBO – Organic Operations Model: Independent Decision-Making (Jola)3. CBO – Early Mobilization Model: Community Decision-Making (Jollyland)
  • Conclusions  Increasing water capacity and flow to facilities:  Mitigates to some degree impact of water rationing  Covers major operational expenses of facilities  Yields positive net margins month-to-month  Creates community access to portable water  More convenient, more economical, potentially safer supply  Increases water-based services (e.g., showers)  Drives greater usage of sanitation facilities  Supports related entrepreneurial solutions (liquid soap, purifiers)Impacts Positively 3 P’s of Sustainability: Profit, People, Planet
