IMPACT STORIES

SANDRA

MARYANNE

Sandra Maryanne is one of the co-founders of Anisan, a device to track elephants to help prevent elephant trampling in rural villages. Sandra and the 3 co-founders (all 16- to 18-year-old girls) are from different villages and met in high school.

 

They were all part of the Information and Communication Technology club and as they started learning about tech, decided to create this device.


This is the first prototype of the solar-powered device called Ndovu Care (Swahili for elephant) by Anisan, which can track elephants up to 1km (0.6 miles) away.

CARE KENYA PROGRAMS

Water Sanitation and Hygiene

Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) has been and remains CARE’s core business. CARE has contributed enormously to the country’s efforts of improving access to safe water which now stands at 51% nationally, modest sanitation and good hygiene practices. Over the years CARE’s WASH programming approach has evolved from just humanitarian intervention to a major driver and catalyst of improving households’ incomes through food production, livestock keeping and environmental hygiene. Diversified approaches have been used including working directly with communities, institutional based WASH activities targeting public schools and health facilities, as well as through partnerships with other actors.
