By inès Magoum

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is funding a five-year program in Kenya to support water, sanitation and hygiene services. The initiative launched on March 13 will require an investment of approximately $130 million.

The “U.S. Government’s Global Water Strategy High Priority Country Plan for Kenya” is launched. The goal of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), which is implementing the program in the East African country, is to strengthen water, sanitation and hygiene services in communities, especially those living in arid and semi-arid areas (Asal).
