WATER AND SANITATION

Here is Life envisions improved knowledge, attitude and practice in environment, health, hygiene and sanitation in community level in Mathare. We are motivated by our belief that a clean environment promotes the growth of the natural ecosystem. This includes all forms of life, from trees to tree dwelling animals. The continuation of species is something many people are deeply concerned with, especially considering the cost that our lifestyle accrues to the environment already.

Waste dumped in rural areas often leads to injuries and deaths. A clean environment also promotes good health. Areas of filth can be rife with disease, and people who are forced to live impoverished in slums often become ill and die due to dirty conditions. A clean environment is essential for disease prevention, and it is important that newborn children especially avoid living in dirty conditions. Our Christian outreach program has borne more fruit since within our targeted surrounding we have Hand wash campaign awareness where we teach people in our Sunday church service simple lessons of washing your hands before eating, cooking ,feeding your baby and after eating, visiting the toilets etc
