Project Hypothesis

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.

Project Outcomes

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.
