Like most places in the world, access to a reliable source for clean water in Kibera is a luxury. Kibera residents have no running water in their homes. To get water, residents carry empty containers to be filled at a community source or purchase water, both of which are typically quite a distance from their residence. It’s estimated that the price of water in Kibera is typically 8 to 10 times higher than what is paid by residents of middle and high income areas in Nairobi. One 20-liter bucket costs about $0.13. In the home, water is rationed by ensuring only one person uses one bucket or pail of water per person to bathe, which is done mostly at night. Some of the water is placed in a cup for use in the morning to brush teeth and wash one’s face. When cooking or washing clothes, often neighbors will share water to make good use of this expensive resource. In Kibera, water conservation is done systematically and an impressive part of the daily routine. Fill up your bucket, take a bucket shower, and enjoy every drop!
