Milaap’s approach of financing sanitation interventions is 2 fold. 1) We fund construction and renovation of toilets for individual households in rural and semi-urban areas.
2) At a community level, we fund schools catering to low-income communities to build additional and separate restrooms for boys and girls. This increases the school attendance of girls as well as improves their participation in activities.
