Wakili Samuel Keter (on left on photo) nominates himself for RainSafe to #FightInequality. With the RainSafe, he will #makerainsafe for himself so that the municipal water he currently uses may be used by the underserves. 

Additionally, he nominates Lelaitich settlement scheme in Soin Ward, Sigowet/Soin Constituency Kericho District because they are a water starved village. Due to this nomination, Lelaitich will get a rain water harvesting system as solution to their water starvation.

Representatives of Lelaitich, Johana Mutai, Elisha Yegon, Joshua Kirwa, Benson Cheptiony and David Mutai agree to prepare the foundation and provide all unskilled labor required.

Samuel and the representatives propose that the County Government of Kericho should also #FightIequality by marking the solutions with their name or logo free of charge. Lelaitich will get the solution as soon as County Government of Kericho agrees to mark the solution.

We acknowledge the big contribution from Aiesec UoN towards #FightInequality. They are influencing organizations to #makerainsafe, consume the safe rainwater and even allow others to use their (organizations’) excess safe rainwater. When the organisations (eg hotels, banks, mobile phone service provider etc) do this, they free a lot of municipal water. The free water is used by the underserved communities at a much lower price.

Allowing others to use their excess safe rainwater reduces use of plastic water bottles, which end up blocking drains, among other things. Needless to say that flooding within towns and cities is partly due to the plastic bottles.

Aiesec UoN does #FightIequality in this manner on twitter – they are writing personalised posts and sharing the posts widely. They are also ‘carrying placards’, writing ordinary letters as a group, holding face to face meetings with representatives of the organizations etc

To #makerainsafe is at no cost to the organizations. It is an opportunity for the organizations to #FightInequality in a huge way.

See the self-explanatory letter of approving Sani solar toilets

By Sandra Matata, AFS

Preparations for the toilets to be put up in Kericho are underway with the Kenya Roads Board promising to send us a ‘positive’ letter in response to our email. Raha Solutions has started negotiations with a dealer in containers, CONTECH, regarding design of the toilets (see above). We decided on containers because they are secure, fast, vaible and clean sanitation solution.

Alvin Rono, a bodaboda business person on the kericho-kapsoit route thinks the toilets will be of great help to the motorist community in Kericho and other motorists who use the route. They will no longer have to ease themselves in the thick bushes along the highway, he says. The toilets should have been on the road before the roads were opened for use, he agrees.

Sani Solar Toilets in shipping containers will ensure the needed efficient logistics and fast implementation.

Recall that CS Samuel Keter nominated roads in Kerich County for toilets.

Recall also that we contacted roads authorities regarding the nomination.

We are happy to announce that Kenya Roads Board called us to say that they were sending us a ‘positive’ letter in response to our email.

Based on the call from Kenya Roads Board, we started negotiations with a dealer in containers regarding design of the toilets (see photo above). Containers because they are secure and fast –– we believe that the toilets should have been on the roads before the roads were opened for use therefore, Sani Solar toilets in shipping containers will ensure the needed efficient logistics and fast implementation.

Recall Mr Keter (on the left on photo above) proposed Safaricom to mark free of charge our work on Kitere Community water.

We are happy to announce that we have contracted a company that will move to site as soon as weather conditions improve a bit.The ground is currently very wet, a condition that may slow down works.
