How a women’s collective transformed the sanitation landscape in slums

Urban Sanitation | Oct, 2017

Engagement of communities in vulnerable habitats with the government for better governance in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene can have a positive impact. Centre for Advocacy and Research (CFAR) created women led collectives in slums of Delhi and Jaipur to work with the government directly for the creation of toilet, water supply and hygiene in their communities.

These women’s collectives are taking lead in guiding government about local conditions and presenting community friendly solutions. The women’s collective success is clearly visible on the ground in Jaipur where the communities have built two-pit community toilets and become open defecation free.
