Overview of the task
Oxfam in Kenya,in collaboration withLeFil Consulting, a company limited by guarantee that offers top-notch business consulting to solve social problems such as poor access to water and sanitation, seek to contribute to a paradigm shift on how rural water infrastructure is installed, managed and paid for in the Arid and Semi -Arid Lands (ASALs) of Kenya. The Parties co-developed a model that seeks to optimize and reduce operation and maintenance (O&M) expenses and improve the quality and lifespan of rural water infrastructure. The concept revolves around bundling several rural water schemes in a region, contracting a private operator to perform their O&M, and instituting a dedicated public fund to pay for O&M expenses.
The purpose of the proposed research is to identify key opportunities to strengthen the economic rights of marginalized women in Kenya.
