Sex for water Campaign
Polycom Development and Umande Trust have teamed up to run a campaign on sex for water within Kibera Slums. There are rising cases of Gender Based Violence arising due to lack of the essential commodity-water.
The overall project objective is to contribute to a reduction in the water and sanitation related sexual exploitation of women and girls in informal settlements. There is need to raise awareness and increase visibility of the issue of sex for water and make it a national priority. There is also need to build capacities of communities and local authorities to address sextortion in water and sanitation points both in rural and urban areas.
In addition, the project will support water utilities to develop and implement gender responsive policies and create a safe environment for women and girls and support policing efforts in the access to water.
The project is expected to run for one year from 2020-2021
