Starting with clean water, DLDT realized the need for full-circle WASH solutions (water, sanitation and hygiene). Communities can thrive once these basic needs are met. DLDT builds VIP (ventilated improved pit) latrines, with bathing rooms and handwashing facilities. The pits can be emptied by a sanitation truck with community savings every 5-8 years. We predominately work in school-based settings, but also in settlements and villages.

Problems we are impacting:
  • 3.6 Billion people don’t have access to basic improved sanitation
  • Attacks on females
  • Loss of life
  • Dignity and safety
  • Community health
  • Health issues such as ulcers
  • School attendance and more equal schooling for girls
A DLDT VIP-latrine block can serve 250 people

A VIP-latrine block costs $6,500
All facilities for a school costs $13,000
A bathing block costs $4,500
A handwashing facility costs $300
