Rural Sanitation Situation in Kenya  47% of Rural dwellers in Kenya have no access to improved sanitation  17 % share latrines  16% are open defecators (using bush or fields)  Kenya has only allocated 0.2 percent of GDP to sanitation as compared to the global target of 0.9 percent and eThekwini Declaration commitment of at least 0.5 percent of GDP to sanitation and hygiene  Rate of attainment of the universal accessto improved sanitation 0.75%  At this rate it would take us 133 years to achieve our target
  5. 5. Impact of poor sanitation in Kenya  Unsafewater and sanitation (5.3 percent) is the second leading riskfactorand contributor to all mortality (deaths) and morbidity burden (DALY) in Kenya 1  More than 50% of the population, is at risk of diseases and death, attributable to unsafe water and sanitation  Diarrheal diseases contributes to at least 40% of deaths among under-five children. 2  Economically, Kenya loses an estimated KES 27 billion (USD 365 million) annually ( 1% GDP) due to poor sanitation.

  15. 15. Smile Toilet Project Intervention  One and a half years ago……..  With the generous support of Japan Habitat Association. We launched the smile latrine project in Kamolo Village Homa Bay County to help communities without latrines construct and use their own latrines.  We conducted a baseline survey of the situation of the village targeting 200 households.  From the survey only 65% had functional latrines, 35% were either defecating in bush or sharing with the neighbors  Among the 65% of the households that had latrines, only 45% were satisfied with the latrines and would use them constantly  83% reported the problem of bad smell and houseflies from the latrine  About 60% of the surveyed households reported that at least one or more of the occupants had diarrhea in the previous one month.
  16. 16. Smile Latrine Project Smile Toilet project combines community led total sanitation strategies with sanitation marketing to improve the sanitation situation in the rural communities Project components Community led total sanitation Sanitation Marketing Micro-financing and savings
  17. 17. Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS)  Based on the findings of the baseline we conducted community led total sanitation to sensitize the households on the importance of building and using their own latrines.  The training emphasized on behavior and attitude change as key to achieving improved sanitation Community Mobilization for Triggering Demonstration of Fecal Contamination Reflection and disgust at the thought of eating feaces
  18. 18. Advocacy for sanitation Community Health Volunteers marching during World Toilet Day 2017 to sensitize people on the importance of toilets
  19. 19. Round Slabs Square slabs  We train masons to make concrete slabs that are durable, affordable, easy to clean and are re-usable.  We use Lixil’s Sato Pan and stool that eliminates bad smell and prevents houseflies from accessing the pit  Sato Stools allows individuals to sit in the latrine  We provide hand washing cans and train communities on how to make and use tippy tap Sanitation Marketing Women Group Trained Masons displaying Lixil Sato Pan and Stool

  23. 23. Income Improvement and Micro Finance Groups  To boost economic income of households we use the shed net technology to grow high impact vegetables that may be used for family consumption and for sale.  We have set up micro finance groups to help members save and borrow money to invest in sanitation facilities. Members are grouped in five and each saves Kshs 100 every week towards latrine construction or upgrading. Every month they are able to save Kshs 2500 which is then used to provide a latrine slab to one of the members. Within 5 months all the five members were able to improve their latrines.

  24. 24. Project Achievement After Project  97% of the village households have functional latrines  Advocacy for sanitation has made the county government to begin constructing public toilets in two market places that previously had none  Cleaner environment without the previously rampant sighting of openly defecated feces.  Children now find it easier to go to the latrines  Hand washing after visiting the latrine is taking root. About 63 % of households now have hand washing cans up from 31% from the baseline survey.

  29. 29. Next Steps/ Sustainability Plans  We are now in the process of designing a modern latrine model suitable for rural communities including both households and schools  We are looking for micro-finance institutions to help us fund the investments in water and sanitation to enable rural communities have their dream sanitary facilities through flexible means of payments ( Installments).  To operationalize sanitation centers that stock all the sanitation products and have well trained staff that provide relevant information on the available and suitable improved sanitation options for rural communities  To provide desludging and waste treatment services to convert waste resources into useful products.
