Narrative Description of Project:

The Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) is a pooled fund managed by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) that was established to gather and direct funding to help countries attain safe sanitation services and adopt good hygiene practices. More than two and a half billion people, close to 40% of the world’s population, do not have access to basic sanitation; GSF offers an efficient and cost-effective opportunity for contributions to help the world’s poorest people address this most basic everyday need. Launched in 2008, GSF promotes sustainable, long-term sanitation and hygiene. GSF is not a separate organisation but rather a fund established to boost expenditure on sanitation and hygiene in support of national policies.

Plan International Cambodia was selected by the GSF and the National Coordinating Mechanism, comprised of representatives from key Government of Cambodia Ministries, to serve as Executing Agency in Cambodia in March 2011. Plan is an international humanitarian child-centred community development organisation, without religious, political or government affiliation and is one of the oldest and largest international development agencies in the world working in 66 countries.
