One of Love INC Kenya’s five affiliates serves the Githogoro slum and sees countless needs, many of which point back to the same root issue – poor sanitation. Without safe, affordable, and accessible drinking water, residents face a high risk of contracting communicable diseases such as typhoid and cholera.
Seeking a lasting solution to this problem, Love INC helped 12 agencies, 12 churches, and about 150 volunteers launch “The Githogoro I Want”. This three year transformation program began in 2017 with a major cleanup exercise, education on environmental care, and a deworming exercise for 1,000 children.
The ultimate aim of “The Githogoro I Want” is to provide long term, sustainable, and manageable solutions to the health and sanitation threats facing the Githogoro community.
“It is a privilege for me to serve at Love INC at such a time as this,” says Gladys Ngoshi, National Coordinator of Love INC Kenya, “Witnessing this transformational power of love with actions and in truth has truly humbled me.”
