Ending open defecation in Sahel

In this case study from Burkina Faso, the One Drop Foundation tells the story of a successful behaviour change pilot project combining CLTS with social art to help end open defecation.
Nearly 21,500 people in the communes of Gorom-Gorom and Falagountou – located in the heart of the Sahel region of Burkina Faso – have now stopped the practice of open defecation thanks to the construction of 1,118 latrines and 588 sumps in their households, 35 blocs of community latrines, as well as a campaign promoting the proper use of individual and community latrines that reached 63,440 people, including 3,600 students from 10 schools.
