Globally, in 2017, 628 million of the 785 million people who still spent more than 30 minutes per day collecting water used unimproved sources or surface water lived in rural areas.
In Kenya, one in two people living in rural Kenya lack access to a basic water services and one in three people rely on surface water for drinking needs.
High non-functionality of rural water supply infrastructure is a major drag on drinking water access and country-wide statistics show that 24% of the rural water points are not working at any given time. To achieve Kenya’s goal of ensuring universal access to basic water services by year 2030, new models of rural water service delivery are required. FundiFix Model is an approach for preventive maintenance and repair of rural water infrastructure to guarantee 24/7 functionality.
