Maji Salama Kijijini Project

 Maji Zima developed ‘Maji Salama Kijijini Project’ (safe water in the villages) which was aimed at providing access to safe drinking water in Kenya; through the usage of family aquafilters at home and community aquafilters in schools, unimproved water points, clinics, hospitals and churches in remote rural, peri-urban and urban human informal areas where inhabitants depend on biologically contaminated water hence at a higher risk of contracting waterborne diseases compared to formal urban areas where most households use treated piped water systems.

The year 2015 saw the piloting of Maji Salama Kijijini Project in Homabay, Siaya, Nairobi and Kajiado counties. During this period, we donated 29 community aquafilters with a capacity of providing 5 litres of clean and safe drinking water per minute and 192 family aquafilters with a capacity of providing a litre of safe drinking water a minute to: 1,837 households and 4,495 pupils in 12 public primary schools including 2 special schools accommodating mentally and physically challenged children and one secondary school, Magina Girls Secondary School, in Homabay county as an urgent response during cholera outbreak in the school that left 51 out of 800 girls hospitalized.

To achieve our mission and project objectives, we emphasized on community education on the usage, maintenance and repair of the aquafilters. We therefore trained a total of 120 persons as Water Education Team members (WETs). The WETs were thoroughly equipped with knowledge of the aquafilters rendering them with ability to train other users, maintain and repair the aquafilters whenever necessary.
