  CAF - Right to Sanitation  >> About the Program  >> Implementation Model

CAF India's approach towards the program is based on developing a holistic model, which emphasizes on the 'construction of toilets', not as an end to the problem but rather viewing it as a means to address the larger issues of education, health, hygiene, dignity and gender equality.

Key Stakeholders
Three Pillars of the Program
Pillar 1: Construction of Toilet Complexes


With the support of local implementing partners and other stakeholders, CAF India plans to construct and renovate toilet complexes in 1000 schools in phase I. A typical toilet complex will have 2 toilets and 3 urinals each for girls and boys with hand washing facility.

Individual Households

CAF India plans to construct cost effective individual toilets at household level. This will include planning, indicative designs, drawings, toilet complexes with various options for safe disposal systems of waste water, develop operation and maintenance arrangements. Each household will be provided with adequate knowledge on WASH to ensure ownership and sustainability.

Community Toilet Complexes

A community sanitary complex will include toilets, urinals and space for washing/bathing facilities depending on the needs of community. The community toilet complex will include operation and maintenance services to monitor the structure on regular basis.
Pillar 2: Sanitation and Hygiene Education
The program will promote effective hygiene practices through effective Social and Behaviour Change Communication (SBCC) on healthy practices like hand washing, encourage a green environment, waste management, discourage open defecations.
