WASH, Open Defecation, Gender Based Violence, Diarrheal Disease
The construction of biodigester latrines will improve health outcomes, decrease gender-based violence, and increase the standard of living in a vulnerable community in New Delhi.
Women who were previously at risk of violence when they would leave their homes to defecate after dark are now able to use the sanitation facility at home. We have received positive feedback from local partner organizations and community leaders demonstrating increased demand for healthier sanitation solutions in the community.
Number of Structures Improved
- 269 (Direct)
- 55+ (Community Members Trained)
- Post-construction questionnaires reveal approximately 190 persons, mostly women, and girls, uptake by beneficiaries who would have otherwise been practicing open defecation.
- Local masons/technicians received training and are better equipped to assemble and install bio-digesters.
