Sanitation Appropriate for Education (SAFE) Initiative

The primary objective of the SAFE initiative is to replace basic pit toilets with appropriate sanitation in accordance with the Norms and Standards for school infrastructure.  The number of toilet seats to be provided is determined by the learner enrolment.  Such number of seats must include age-appropriate facilities in primary schools, as well as facilities for the disabled in all schools. The scope of work includes the following:

  • Assessment of existing sanitation infrastructure
  • De-sludging of the existing pit toilets
  • Demolition of the existing pit toilets
  • Construction of appropriate toilets
  • Provision of rainwater harvesting tanks
  • Construction of walkways
