- It's #WaterWednesday!!! So I figured I'd take you all back with me to Nairobi in 2014... Just outside of the Kibera Slums. These water tank trucks line the streets for miles - boasting clean water, but they're all still contaminated with water- & vector-borne diseases and communicable illnesses.��Like in many other slums, shantytowns, and informal settlements around the world, water is scarce, costly, uncertain, and VERY contaminated in Kibera, Nairobi. Due to a combination of political exclusion, the operation of water mafias, water rationing, and poor infrastructure, residents of Kibera pay MORE for water than wealthier Kenyans in tapped neighborhoods of Nairobi, and more than even what Europeans and New Yorkers pay (Crow and Odaba 2009; World Bank 2005) - all on an income of less than $1 US/day. Kibera households spend up to 20% of their income on water—which can be equal to the cost of their rent (United Nations Development Programme - UNDP 2006). In working with local and international engineers, & community activists our #EveryDropCounts initiative has built wells, filters, & water distribution services in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, the Philippines, Haiti, Peru, Bangladesh, & India. We aim to provide sustainable wells & filters for communities in need across the globe - access to clean drinking water is an internationally recognized human right. �Wishing each of you beautiful beings peace, love, unity, & respect. Join the movement and be the change you wish to see in the world. 📸: Lauren Nicole Keyes #EveryDropCounts #BeTheChange #CleanWater #WaterIs #HumanRight #Kibera #Contamination #Collection #GlobalGoals #SocialGood #CleanWater #Sustainability #GrowthAndDevelopment #Advocate #Empower #Inspire #BeTheChange #Peace #Love #Unity #Respect #PLUR #PLURnt #Grassroots #SocEnt #Philanthropy #Success #BTCInternational #SocialMedia #SocialMediaMarketing 6 hours ago
