Kenya Electricity Expansion Project (KEEP)
Kenya is one of the fastest urbanizing countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and incidence of urban poverty has been on rise. For urban slum dwellers, access to basic services such as water, sanitation, electricity, and transportation is very poor. GPOBA’s Kenya Electricity Expansion project encouraged the expansion of Kenya’s electricity grid into slum areas through an output-based aid approach. Extending the electrical grid into slum areas will not only allow the service provider to meet targets for new connections, but will reduce theft and vandalism, and raise quality of life in the slums.
