Principles and practices for the inclusion of disabled people in access to safe sanitation: a case study from Ethiopia

Disabled people represent the largest socially excluded group and most live without access to basic sanitary services, which can exacerbate impairments and poverty. Nevertheless, they are often excluded from development intervention and research. In response, WaterAid in Ethiopia designed a pilot project in Butajira to meet the needs of disabled people within their service delivery work. Learning gained through the project informed WaterAid’s equity and inclusion approach.

Need to clean our biases first, then our streets

The country is ostensibly in the throes of a great social movement for sanitation. Gandhi’s name is evoked, Prime Minister Narendra Modi leads from the front, ministers lift brooms for cameras, and officers, college and school children take oaths against littering and to clean their surroundings. Earlier the PM pledges in his Independence Day speech toilets for girls and boys in all schools.
