Numerous projects have been implemented and successfully
completed with the help of a funding organization. Much has been done in the
field of rainwater collection for crops as well as domestic and livestock
consumption. Thousands of kilometers of piping systems have been laid and water
tanks, as well as structures for conserving water and dams were built.
But in reality most of these projects never function
efficiently or breakdown completely once the donor pulls out.
The question is why? This paper discusses the question as to
why this is happening in Kenya as well as all over the world.
