Plan International with the assistance of IRC and IDS (UK) is working with communities in identifying barriers to accessing sanitation in Africa and exploring initiatives to ensure proper sanitation facilities are available to them.

In January 2010, Plan launched a Euro 8.5 million Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) project in eight African countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Zambia, Ghana, Niger and Sierra Leone. With the backing of the Dutch government, this five-year project (till December 2014) dubbed “Empowering self-help sanitation of rural and peri-urban communities and schools in Africa,” was designed to promote and scale-up community based and school focused self-help sanitation approaches in Africa. The project is also intended to support communities’ aspirations to climb the sanitation ladder by introducing Sanitation Marketing.
