Community Profile

This project is part of Bridge Water Project’s program in Western Kenya. What follows is direct from them, edited for clarity:

PROPOSED PROJECT

The proposed Inzu yene self help group water project rehab, is a group compromising of women and men from Etenje location. The self help group was started with a vision of buying and selling maize, growing vegetables and table banking. The group has 21 members.

The groups owns a kefinco well that was drilled by Kefinco company. The well was functional until 2005 when it broke down. Due to lack knowledge, the community members dumped the project and were further vandalized by unknown people. Since then, the community members have been suffering going back to the stream looking for water. Due to this, the community members together with the inzu yene have approached BWP to assist them rehabilitate the well so as to enable them access clean and safe water.

CURRENT WATER SOURCE

The Inzu yene and the whole community access water from Eshireba stream. The stream dries up during the dry season. The stream is not protected hence contaminated. The turbidity value measures 45.

POPULATION

The community has a population of 500 people and 50 children of hope care nursery school.

HYGIENE AND SANITATION

The hygiene and sanitation of the community is good. The compound is kept clean. Their kitchen is also kept clean. At least every home has a composite pit for dumping litter and clean latrines. No hand washing points outside the latrines.

 PROJECT BENEFICIARIES

The community members and the nursery school will be the great beneficiaries of the water project.

 ASSESSING THE NEED

There is need to rehabilitate this well by putting an Affridev pump to enable the community members access safe and clean water.

WATER COMMITTEE

Yet to be formed.

Project Type

Well rehabilitation is one of the most cost effective ways to bring clean, safe water to a community.  Sometimes it involves fixing a broken hand pump, other times it means sealing a hand dug well to prevent it from being contaminated.  These repairs, and often time total replacements, coupled with sanitation and hygiene training make a huge impact in communities.
