MESSAGE FROM
THE CHAIRPERSON

The year 2013 saw Maji na Ufanisi make tremendous
progress in the quest to achieve its long-term vision of
contributing to the realisation of “Water for All” in Kenya.
The MnU Board of Directors has continued to play an
oversight role in the highly focused pursuit of this goal.
Kenya’s operating environment has also been going
through unprecedented changes including: the
implementation of the current constitution which was
promulgated in 2010; the emergence of highly challenging
opportunities presented by the Kenya government’s vision
2030; relevant legislative decisions such as the Urban
and Cities Act, 2011; and for MnU most promising of all
the emerging county structures and devolved government
structures. Taking into account these ongoing reforms, the
Board intends to integrate the issues and transform them
into emerging opportunities that the organisation can
realise in improving the delivery of service in the water
and sanitation sector both at County and National levels.
During the ended year, the MnU Board also underwent a
transition phase in which the outgoing chairperson Ms.
Jane Delorie handed over to Mr. Peter Maina as chair.
Ms Delorie and Mr Elijah Agevi handed over at the 2013
Annual General Meeting held on 30th August 2013 to
welcome the new Board members consisting of Ms. Mary
Nginyo, Eng. Lawrence Mwangi, Mr. Wafula Nabutola,
Ms. Theresa Wairimu, Ms. Mary Matu and myself as
the directors. The Board takes this opportunity to thank
Ms. Jane Delorie and her team for their tremendous

work and congratulate them for all their inputs
and achievements. More so taking into account
the reforms that MnU made during Ms Delorie’s
three-year tenure, Maji na Ufanisi will be forever
indebted to her and wish her all the best in her future
endeavours.
In the year 2013 the Board led MnU to undertake
key deliberations that were aimed at diversifying
the organisation’s donor base through positive
engagement with development partners and key
stakeholders in the water and sanitation sector. A
new Strategic Plan that would usher in a transitional
phase to strengthen the growing unity of purpose
among the organisation’s stakeholders was
developed. Thus we were able to even more clearly
define our approaches to urban and rural work
while enabling MnU to maximise its strategic and
comparative advantages gained previously in the
fields of water supply, environmental sanitation and
water resources management.
The transitional phase has enabled MnU to well
position one of its strategic pillars, which aims
at getting MnU to attain the status of a leader
particularly in influencing policy, building knowledge
and promoting best practices in the water sector at
County and National levels. As part of that process,
in 2013 the MnU Board held a series of meetings to
formulate appropriate mechanisms and measures

Mr. Peter Maina, Board Chairman
that would help the organisation achieve this status. The
result was that now Maji na Ufanisi could even more
effectively deliver on its mission.
The rest of this report highlights Maji an Ufanisi’s efforts
and achievements in 2013. All these would not have been
possible without technical support and resources from
each of our funding agencies, working partners at the
County and National levels and peers in the professional
exchange forums. We gratefully acknowledge your
assistance and collaboration. The meaningful differences
reported here as made by MnU in individual households,
and in the systemic way that Kenya is advancing in its
water and sanitation sector would not have been possible
without help from all of you.
