Society Empowerment Project (SEP) has actively been involved  in WASH project within Kasipul Constituency.  Through the cordial collaboration with The Global Partners For Development (GPFD), SEP has managed to increase access to clean safe drinking water to the residents of Oyugis Market. This was done by distributing water from the GPFD Funded Matata borehole, which is situated a bout 2km away from the market center. The water has been channeled to the market center and is in use currently.

The second phase of this project involved putting up of an ecosan toilet within the market center. The construction of this facility is on going, it is at 80% completion. It is designed such that each unit (male and female sides), has a urinal, and squat hole and seat on model. SEP appreciates the efforts of GPFD, Kasipul Sub County, County Government of Homa /Bay, Oyugis Market Community and the local community of Oyugis region for their immense support for the said projects.

Photos of these facilities are to be uploaded soon…..
