WASH in Disaster Prone Communuties (DPC) Project
WASH in DPC was a social support scheme designed to pilot the implementation of the sanitation Social Fund. The project was geared toward supporting the poorest households in disaster prone communities in the 3 regions in northern Ghana. A total of 500 households from 63 communities in 16 districts were selected to benefit from the project. In selecting the beneficiaries, preference was given to ODF communities and LEAP beneficiaries.
Through the project, 500 flood resilient household latrines were constructed. The project catered for the fees of certified latrine artisans and cement for the construction of flood resilient substructures. The household provided unskilled labour, excavation and all material for the construction of superstructures.
