While the population of Kenya is steadily rising – recently being enumerated at over 47 million (Kenya Population and Housing Census 2019) – 40 percent of Kenyans still rely on unimproved water sources such as ponds, shallow wells, and rivers, while 70 percent of Kenyans lack access to basic sanitation solutions. Rural Kenya and urban slums suffer the most, with most people often unable to connect to piped water infrastructure.
