VIA Water Program
The VIA Water Project -Promoting access to clean water
Local Financing for Sustainable Water and Sanitation Provision In Lake Region of Kenya.
Access to safe water is a number 6 SDG that aims to address water and sanitation issues not only in Kenya but the world as a whole. From this goal, SANA came up with the idea of ensuring and enhancing access to safe water and proper sanitation in the Lake Region of Kenya with focus of Climate Smart Water and Sanitation technologies through secondary Institutions. This, they have managed to carry out through partnership formations with a Northern Development Partner( Aqua for All of the Netherlands), County based partnerships involving county governments, Civil society organizations and a Private Sector Bank. Through this Project SANA has managed to put up several water points in schools and communities i.e.
- Kenyenya water Utility supplying Kerongorori sec School and its environs-
