Maintenance for Sustainable Water Access in Rural Areas in Kenya will implement a business model that pools resources and expertise from the public and private sectors in Kenya to provide reliable and affordable water services to rural communities. The model will demonstrate that private Internet of Things based remote monitoring of pay-as-you-go solutions are a cost effective way to improve water access in extremely remote areas.
P4G has invested US $82,000 in this partnership.
The partnership model aims to help county governments of Turkana and Nyeri save money by better maintaining water infrastructure through coordinated, professional operation and maintenance; increase the average lifespan of infrastructure from eight to 12 years; and attract further investment by demonstrating a strong commitment to resource effectiveness, accountability and innovation.
