Water Systems Audit Jobs, NGO Jobs 2020, Oxfam Jobs
In Kenya, Oxfam works with others to alleviate poverty and inequality.
We work with the most vulnerable communities in the dry and remote northern regions, and in the impoverished slums of the capital, Nairobi.
In Kenya, the highest poverty levels are in the northern pastoralist districts – in some areas 95% of people fall below the poverty line.
Like many developing countries, Kenya is undergoing rapid urbanisation.
It’s estimated that by 2050 half the Kenyan population will be living in urban areas.
This high presents a myriad of challenges. 34% of the 17 million poor Kenyans are urban poor and most of them live in informal urban settlements.
Oxfam in Kenya Since starting work in Kenya in 1963, Oxfam has: provided long-term development aid and emergency relief, for example supporting refugees; promoted peace and managed conflicts between communities; campaigned for better governance and equitable access to services.
We aim to help citizens stand up for their rights, and we work with others from government, civil society, communities, international development actors and the private sector.
Overview of the task
Oxfam in Kenya, in collaboration with LeFil Consulting, a company limited by guarantee that offers top-notch business consulting to solve social problems such as poor access to water and sanitation, seek to contribute to a paradigm shift on how rural water infrastructure is installed, managed and paid for in the Arid and Semi -Arid Lands (ASALs) of Kenya.
The Parties co-developed a model that seeks to optimize and reduce operation and maintenance (O&M) expenses and improve the quality and lifespan of rural water infrastructure.
The concept revolves around bundling several rural water schemes in a region, contracting a private operator to perform their O&M, and instituting a dedicated public fund to pay for O&M expenses.
The purpose of the proposed research is to identify key opportunities to strengthen the economic rights of marginalized women in Kenya.
