Title: Interactive Learning and Knowledge-Sharing Platform for Youths
The proposed project seeks to improve and sustain sanitation and hygiene standards to reduce diseases such as malaria, cholera, typhoid and dysentery. There are about 3700 plots in Mukuru Kwa Njenga Slum (a plot has 20 houses with an estimated 5 people per house). A plastic toilet/bathroom will be placed on each plot. The local groups within SIDAREC partnership will be trained in daily maintenance of toilets and the drainage system. This project will avail income to many unemployed and usually idle youths who will ensure maintenance of the toilets and drainage system.
