Benin Programme Overview

The GSF-supported programme in Benin promotes sustainable and equitable sanitation and hygiene within disadvantaged communities in rural areas. The overarching aim of the programme is to improve health and living conditions, as well as to help Benin achieve post-2015 development goals. The programme works in 27 communes across four departments (regions), collaborating closely with the Ministry of Health. Local administrations in communes serve as Sub-grantees, who manage the selection of civil society organizations, which in turn serve as implementing agencies.
