WSSCC is currently a global, multi-stakeholder membership and partnership organization that works with poor people, organizations, governments and local entrepreneurs to improve sanitation and hygiene at scale. Our vision is a world in which everyone, everywhere can practice safe sanitation and hygiene with dignity. We contribute by enabling all people and especially women, girls and those living in vulnerable situations to practice the right to sanitation and hygiene across the course of their lives with dignity and safety.


We work in 16 focus countries through designated Executing Agencies and National Coordinators that implement grant funding. WSSCC’s flagship initiative, the Global Sanitation Fund was established a decade ago, and by the end of 2019 has enabled 28 million people to live in open defecation free environments across 13 countries. WSSCC and the GSF have also, at the international level, and by supporting human rights initiatives, actively encouraged country to country learning, and by participating in technical knowledge building, continuously advocated for improved and equitable sanitation and hygiene standards.
