Kamungi Community Conservancy - Poverty Alleviation
Safe and acceptable water for human consumption that is available in sufficient quantity, physically accessible and affordable is a crucial prerequisite for human wellbeing. Access to safe water is not only fundamental to good health but also to satisfactory livelihoods, dignity and prospects for economic growth and education. The lack of access to sufficient amounts of safe water leads to human suffering and to loss of human potential, which is ethically indefensible as well as economically wasteful.
Nestling on the border of Tsavo East National Park near Mtito Andei in southern Kenya are the remote villages of Ngiluni and Kamunyu - merged to form Kamungi for ease of reference. Kamungi is Home to approximately 2000 people of the WaKamba tribe. Due to the remoteness of the area, the raging heat and lack of water, this marginalized community is failing to thrive.
