Adama Sy Parle des Caisses de Solidarité Villageoise (Sénégal)

January 2019

Adama Sy (Responsable de programme, Agetip, Sénégal) parle d’une initiative locale, les Caisses de Solidarité Villageoise, auxquelles toutes les personnes au sein d’un même village contribuent, même les plus démunies. Le but de cette initiative est de pouvoir soutenir financièrement tous les villageois à construire des latrines et à y accéder. Une fois que le statut FDAL est atteint les caisses continuent de soutenir les gens à construire des latrines améliorées.
