The sustainability of open defecation free (ODF) status in rural areas where toilets frequently collapse is a global concern.
In Tanzania, SNV has developed an innovative approach called Jirani sanitation groups (JSGs). 'Jirani' means neighbour and the approach is based on community support; if a toilet collapses another can be built with the help of neighbours.
This case study presents the JSGs intervention, providing practical information for its implementation and a brief discussion on the challenges and lessons learned by the SNV Tanzania team and their partners on the ground.
