This project will directly impact 30,000 people and create 10 direct jobs for local staff. The project will save 158,400 trees and 144,000 CO2eq over four years of funding. It will safely treat almost 5,000 tons of human waste from the community.
The negative effects of poor sanitation are greater for women, and improving waste management within Kakuma will benefit them positively. If less firewood is purchased, there will be fewer women facing security risks from firewood collection activities. Women will also have equal opportunities for selection to the jobs we create.
