rubbish and sewerage in Motherland, Nairobi

Motherland is a village located in Kamukunji division in Nairobi. Around 2000 families live in Motherland. Open defecation is a huge problem since there are only three public toilets available to residents. There are no private sanitation blocks. Motherland also has the only ‘illegal’ dump site that serves the whole of the Eastleigh area of Nairobi. The area lacks a sewer system as well as other social amenities like public schools, public health clinics or road infrastructure. It is in this context that Community Cleaning Services in partnership with the City Council of Nairobi, Community Development Section started to implement urban CLTS.
