Water and Sanitation Program
Water project in Leyayi between Songa in Marsabit County
This area is inhabited by both the Samburu and Borana communities. The two communities used to fight due to inadequate water and pasture supply. As a way of restoring peace, SOMIRENEC established a water point for both communities. The water was tapped from the forest. The water point provided water for the cattle from the two communities. The water was also used for domestic use as the water point acted as an interacting point for the two warring communities. About six households near the water point also started using the water to improve nutrition by establishing home gardens.
