Women's role
Abstract:The role of women as carriers of water, managers, users, family health educators, motivators and agents of change must be clear if the benefits of water supply and sanitation are to be achieved. This paper discusses the level of water supply in Kenya with a view to assessing women's participation in the provision of water and sanitation. Factors that have inhibited women's participation in water supply and sanitation projects include poor planning and implementation, vague objectives in regard to community participation and lack of training. On the whole, there has been little sensitivity to the special needs of women. Bibliogr., sum.
