Our mission is to unlock opportunity for Kenya’s poorest residents, by ensuring everyone has clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene forever. Reducing time lost to water collection and preventable disease removes barriers to learning and earning, allowing people to lift themselves out of poverty.

Where we work in Kenya, 8 out of 10 people lack access to clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene. Most residents live in rural communities and spend hours each day walking to collect dirty water or find a safe place to relieve themselves. Dirty water and poor hygiene spread diseases meaning even more time is lost to sickness that could have been used to learn and earn. For children, this can mean the difference between dropping out of primary school and completing their education.
With your support, Dig Deep could roll out a lifesaving intervention for 18,000 people by mobilising communities in Bomet County to reach every single household with a toilet and place to wash their hands. We will work with communities to determine their sanitation and hygiene needs, including supporting them to build their own toilets and handwashing stations. Participating villages will be supported through four stages of Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) in line with best practice.
“The children are really suffering here, they miss nearly one day in five due to illness. We felt helpless until we met Dig Deep. The work you will do will have a great impact on the children’s lives.”
“Dig Deep’s construction and project supervision is the best. They also train teachers, pupils and the community on menstrual hygiene management which is a big problem in Kenya. We are working hand in hand to enable our community to have clean water, safe sanitation and good hygiene.”
“I understand and see the great work that Dig Deep as a charitable organisation is doing in my community, it is impacting immensely on the entire location and community.”
