To ensure communities have access to the materials and skills necessary to build good quality toilets, the Aga Khan Development Network as part of its five year Comprehensive Sanitation Initiative in India is strengthening the sanitation supply chain in rural areas. One way of doing this is by training masons on appropriate construction techniques. Besides benefiting communities who haven’t built toilets yet, masons who are now trained in how to construct sanitation units are getting more work and are better paid.
