Our strategic plan in Health and Sanitation is to promote the benefits of sanitation, especially in schools, as a tool to increase community wide use of sanitary practices such as handwashing, especially in children, and as a result achieve the reduction of diseases caused by unclean water such as dysentery.

We work to directly build sanitary infrastructure, such as clean water wells, improved toilets, and handwashing stations, to normalize sanitary facilities and engage local communinities and governments in their adoption, maintenance and expansion.
