In 2012 Umande partnered with Cranfield University to deliver innovation and choices in water supply in the informal settlements of Nairobi and Kisumu. Along with paying up to nine times more than typical utility bulk water prices, residents in Kenya’s slums must spend a significant amount of time collecting water from standposts or water kiosks, where they fill and carry 20l jerrycans with water.
Supported by the European Union and long-time Umande partners SustainableEnergy, the Inter-ethnic Dialogue and Peace Project aims to break down prejudices, encourage dialogue, and provide the right tools to citizens and youth in Kibera.
The Kibera Environment Initiative intends to enlighten community members to actively participate in environmental improvement and local governance issues, ensuring that resources are allocated for environmental improvement projects.
This project aims at establishing collaboration and partnerships between youth community-based organizations (CBOs) and reputable NGOsto form environment campaigns targeting youth in Mali, Burkina Faso, Kenya, and Mozambique.
Umande has partnered with Safi International to provide thousands of Safi e-cookers to Kibera residents. These e-cookers use bioethanol, offering a safe, healthy, sustainable, and affordable alternative to cooking with charcoal or firewood.
Despite bold efforts by a range of actors to improve sanitation, a significant majority of households in urban areas have yet to gain access to decent, dignified, healthy and affordable sanitation choices.
