Thanks and regards,

Plans for projects

We liked the rain water harvesting technologies and WASH technology. For the Rain Water Catchment Technology, I liked it because I live in a semi desert region that has one rain season across the year, and many people poor people have little information of how they can harvest rain water even without houses roofed with iron sheets. We have trained the community members on how they can harvest rain water from trees, grass thatched houses and other simple methods.
Since I am a primary school teacher, working with many children and parents the WASH technology made a lot sense to me. Due to lack of water, people don’t observe toilet hygiene and as a result many people are infected with diarrhea, typhoid and other diseases. After the conference we have continued to teach school children and community on how to wash their hands and also installing tipi-taps around the school compound and near the toilets.

Hi Jennifer and Priscah

Thanks so much for submitting your organizational profile!

It says you have about $2,175 used for your water projects. Can you tell me briefly how that is used? Also, how much community participation do you get when you are doing a project? Can you tell me how you get the community to mobilize and contribute?

In sisterhood!

(a) TEI WA WO has managed to mobilize resources both from the communities and other capable partners within and out of Kitui e.g. from GROOTS Kenya and ADRA. However most of these funds have been mobilized by the community members. The funds mobilized have been used to begin income generating activities for people living with HIV and AIDS and orphans. This includes purchasing of water pump and pipes and contacting trainings for the women to deal with the projects. The group has also installed plastic water tank by the rivers side to store water for irrigation for the projects mentioned above. Additionally a portion of these funds have been used to facilitate community workshops on water and hygiene.(b) in all our activities, we have managed to bring together all community stakeholders including the local government administrators, religious leaders, community members, CBOs and NGO leaders and other government technical staffs like the constituency AIDS Control council coordinator. (c) To get everybody on board, TEI WA WO has organized for local to local dialogues to ensure everyone has a role to play in the community projects. TEI WA WO leaders also ensure that there is effective community feed backing in the event of any workshops outside the community. The CBO has organized for fund raising events to mobilize both financial and material resources to mobiles funds from its partners and community members.
