77 out of 1,000 infant deaths are attributed to waterborne disease each year in Kenya, making it the leading cause of death for children under five years. To best address this uprising concern, Carolyne Otenyo Odunga has established the Mundindi Community WASH Project in Nairobi, Kenya. The project will employ youth to construct a water catchment and purifying system for an upwards of 300 community members, along with sanitation education and trainings for health workers.
