Worldwide, more than 1 billion people lack access to clean drinking water, adequate sanitation facilities, and hygiene. Water-related diseases cause millions of deaths each year. Access to sanitation is equally alarming with less than 50% of Kenya’s population has access to basic sanitation services. Furthermore, the resulting elevated exposure to waterborne diseases poses a major threat to public health. Diarrheal disease alone is a top cause of death in Kenyan children under age five. Acumen’s investments are making clean, safe drinking water available at affordable prices to low-income customers.
