Overview

Residents of Kabokorit in Turkana, Kenya, used to rely on ‘scoop holes’ dug in a river for their water. Water-borne diseases were common, and each trip took around three hours.

Under the SWIFT programme, Oxfam has been supporting local utility KAWASEPRO to improve the water infrastructure, and residents can now access clean water from three kiosks in the village. 

Find out how the lives of Rose Akuwam and her family have changed as a result, and how Oxfam continues to work with KAWASEPRO to build capacity and ensure the long-term sustainability of the system.
