Viva con Agua

Viva con Agua pays special attention to Container Based Sanitation / composting toilets. To strengthen WASH systems, we foster Sanitation Marketing Groups and promote WASH-related Social Business. That enables people to change their roles from user groups to customers and producers and increase their responsibility for a successful outcome of WASH activities. It sets examples that promote trust and entrepreneurial spirit of other local stakeholders.
