The Domestos Toilet Academy programme aims to improve access to clean and safe toilets in rural communities.

Since 2015, Unilever and Domestos has partnered with PSI to launch a large-scale DTA programme in the state of Bihar, building on PSI’s existing partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This programme is training sanitation entrepreneurs and making sanitation financing accessible for households to own a toilet. This enables entrepreneurs to grow their businesses whilst selling toilets and educating communities on the importance of sanitation and hygiene.

Our ambition:

Is to help overcome the barriers to sanitation in rural Bihar. Our aim is to sell and install 115,000 household toilets between 2015 and 2017. We will do this by training 250 sanitation entrepreneurs, and enable them to start or grow sustainable sanitation businesses to supply, install and maintain hygienic toilets in rural communities.
