AVFP implements Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Programs (WASH) in both Kisumu informal settlements and rural areas targeting households, schools and food vendors with specific objectives.
To increase timely and equitable access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene services to affected communities, and to maintain stability of access to such services in areas lacking safe drinking and cooking water.
Strengthen chronically vulnerable communities to (manage the) WASH crisis, with a priority in piloting use of water filters, and supporting entrepreneurial activities with this product. We also work with stakeholders in developing a water infrastructure and assist in the maintenance of existing water systems.
