MWA Hosts Learning Event in Kenya

May 2012 | Nairobi, Kenya

More than 50 participants from across the development sector joined in day-long discussion hosted by MWA in Nairobi on May 8 to share lessons on WASH in schools, sustainable sanitation, multiple uses of water, development strategies for droughts and point of use water treatment.

The event, “Sustainable WASH Services:  Learning from the Field,” focused on the challenges, successes, and new technologies and approaches used in the Millennium Water Alliance – Kenya Program (MWA-KP) over the last seven years of our USAID-funded WASH programs in rural Kenya.

An official from the Ministry of Northern Kenya and Other Arid Lands updated attendees on current activities by the Government of Kenya to reach all Kenyans with water and sanitation services.  The event closed with a statement from Martin Mulongo of USAID Kenya’s Agriculture, Business and Environment Office (ABEO).

MWA implementing partners – CARE, CRS, Food for the Hungry, Living Water International Kenya, and World Vision – also showcased the highlights of their programs in an interactive ‘WASH marketplace’.
