Voicing the predicaments of the Woman in the slums Muungano wa Wanavijiji’s member from Kahawa Soweto settlement, Anastasia Wairimu explains. “In Kahawa Soweto the issue of sanitation and its relation to women is a crisis in our settlements. The irresponsible means of disposing used sanitary towels and condoms has been in the rise. This is a health hazard to both kids and adults, some of us even dispose such human waste in flush toilets which end up blocking the minimal sewerage infrastructure in the settlements. We need to take responsibility as women in leading by example by creating awareness on advocating for clean environments as well as maintaining high sense of hygiene”, said Anastasia.
