The main objective of this UNICEF project is to improve access to safe water for floods-affected people in 13 counties of Kenya. With this CERF grant, At least 6,360 school children whose school water supply was restored after flood damage were reached with access to safe water, contributing to safe personal hygiene practices at school level, and thus averting water-borne illness. Over 15,457 households (77,283 people) also received WASH NFIs (Jeri cans, buckets, soap and water purification tablets) to improve temporary access to safe water for populations using unsafe sources through household water treatment and storage practice. A total of 204,964 girls, boys, women, and men received critical WASH-related information including handwashing with soap at critical times. The project benefitted a total of 236,866 persons including 60,069 girls and 62,201 women.
