Togo Programme Overview

The GSF-supported programme is a key contributor to the ‘Togo Sans Défécation à l’Air Libre’ (‘Open Defecation Free Togo’) or ‘Togo SANDAL’—a national movement for an ODF Togo by 2030. Engaging all stakeholders around the movement, the programme works in rural communities to increase the use of latrines and promote good hygiene practices. UNICEF currently manages the programme, which is implemented by local NGOs. The programme covers 40 percent of Togo’s rural areas, facilitating Community-Led-Total-Sanitation (CLTS) and social marketing in the Savanes and Kara regions and five districts in the Plateaux region. As of the end of 2019, the programme counts a total of 1,161,597 people who have access to improved toilets in 1,830 ODF communities.
