A Toxics-Free Future

Lead in Paint

By Gilbert Koech

Many Kenyan childen could becomementally stunted and unable to respond to basic instructions because of exposure to lead paints.

Lead poisoning among children can have lifelong health risks, including learning disabilities, anaemia and disorders in coordination, visual and language skills.

IPEN's Asian Lead Paint Elimination Project has been selected as one of eight project success stories to be featured in the special issue of the SWITCH-Asia Magazine commemorating the program´s ten year anniversary. In addition, there is a special chapter about Nepal that also mentions the project. 

IPEN's project was selected out of the 95 project funded to date.
