in Santa Rosa and San Roman, Belize
As an MDG (Millennium Development Goal) commitment, by 2015 Belize sought to reach 100% access to improved sanitation services in rural and urban areas. However, in 2016, 12.351 households still have unimproved sanitation and many people suffer from unimproved sanitation and several of its negative health and social impacts.
To address this goal, in Stann Creek district, the project will:
The latrine model implemented by the project does not use water and, after several months of decomposition, waste material turns into compost that can be used as organic fertilizer for trees and plants.
Increase access to improved sanitation and adequate hygiene and residue disposal practices in San Roman and Santa Rosa villages.
Improve awareness and knowledge of adequate hygiene and residue disposal practices at a national level.
During project implementation, HPPB will collaborate with:
Start Date: June 2018
