Clean Hands Every School Day!

Kitale, Kenya

Children will stop being victims to become lifelong ambassadors when they experience properly managed sanitation systems and adjust their behaviour accordingly at an early age in schools. Our work promotes health, education and holistic development.

School Sanitation, Water and Hygiene (WASH) in rural Kenya

Hand of Progress e.V. is a non-profit organization working towards improving water, sanitation and hygiene in schools.


Our commitment:
  • improve accessibility to sanitation facilities
  • protect children and learning spaces from foul latrines
  • protect the environment from further faecal contamination

Background
We focus on schools because of their vital role in breaking the vicious cycle of diseases and their impact resulting from poor sanitation, hygiene and water.  Covid19 pandemic has increased the urgency of intervention in vulnerable schools.

Currently, more than 3000 children in five boarding schools in Kitale and West Pokot, Kenya are waiting for our help.  Besides the sanitation challenges, these children have to fetch water far from their schools.  This is dangerous and interferes with learning hours.

We support
  • construction of permanent sanitation structures
  • digging and storage of fresh water from boreholes and rainwater.
  • construction of sewage disposal systems
  • hygiene promotion
  • operations and maintenance
