Join The Pipe- Kenya
Join The Pipe is an initiative of the International Transformation Foundation. The project enables schools to set up on-site water kiosks - with multiple benifits for students. The kiosks are managed by pupils, promoting responsibility and commitment and children no longer need to be absent from school to queue at a borehole. Overall sanitation and hygiene facilities in schools are also improved and money is generated within the school through a repaid loan system. Join The Pipe is a sustainable business that sells clean water to community residents at an affordable price. The business also reduces plastic waste and CO2 emissions caused by the transportation of unsustainable bottles.
