Project Description

SSP seeks to enable low income families – especially women and girls in rural Maharashtra to reduce vulnerability to infections and other water borne diseases. SSP over the years have been leveraging women as entrepreneurs and leaders (Sakhis) who are selected from within rural low income communities.

Sakhis play a key role as community sanitation ambassadors - in their communities together with fostering relationships with the local governing bodies to access subsidies. Through Sakhis, we build awareness on WASH practices among underserved communities and promote safe - affordable household drinking water solutions and custom-built, prefabricated toilets for individual households in rural India. Over 1550 prefabricated toilets installed across 30 villages in Maharashtra More than 30,000 community members across 6000 households are aware on hygiene practices, access to toilets and safe drinking. 

SSP has also received support from NABARD, Habitat for Humanity India and Yunus Social Business fund to further our work in community sanitation.
