National Bank of Kenya (NBK) injected Kshs 1 million as sponsorship for the second edition of the Non-Revenue Water (NRW) Management Symposium being hosted by the Kenya Water Institute and themed ‘Closing the Last Mile SDG 6’.

The symposium that was held in Mombasa on 9th and 10th May, brings together key players and partners within the water ecosystem and showcase cutting edge technologies that address NRW reduction.

Speaking during the symposium, NBK Managing Director Paul Russo said: “NRW management is important and allows utilities to expand and improve service, enhance financial performance, make cities more attractive, increase climate resilience and reduce energy consumption. As such, we have set aside an affordable and flexible financing through our MajiKonnect program to finance Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Sector (WASH) sector players including SMES and Water Services Providers to improve access to water services.”

Russo added that NBK was keen to ensure sustainability in the WASH sector by facilitating achievement of operational sustainability by water service providers for a healthy environment and a stable society

Last year, KEWI entered into collaboration with National Bank of Kenya as a strategic partner to implement WASH program with the aim of helping the country achieve SDG 6 - clean water and sanitation for all.

The collaboration includes areas in research and sanitation technology transfer areas, equipping of the KEWI water quality laboratories, support of KEWI corporate social responsibility activities, support to KEWI WASH programs and support of some short course programmes like Basic Plumbing Course and Water Governance.

Others include support to the KEWI Education Revolving Fund, Student Internship, Industrial attachment, Exchange and Internship programmes.
