Bondo villagers preserve water as a human right

To support the Kenyan government’s effort to institutionalise the right to water and see over its operation processes, a pilot project was carried out in 2010 to enhance water governance using a “Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA)”.

The project was funded by UNDP in Kenya and by the UNDP Water Governance Facility. The project was implemented by Water for Health Organization, a local NGO, with the support of the Ministry of Water and Irrigation, Lake Victoria South Water Services Board, Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission, and Kenya National Human Rights Commission.
