The FINISH partnership approach has proved itself in India (since 2009) and Kenya (since 2013).
Through local public private collaboration in India and Kenya, by 2018, 3,5 million people enjoyed the benefits of safe sanitation.
Thanks to nearly 1 million toilets and the creation of 10 million workdays in construction alone.
Local public private collaboration contributes to healthier and economically empowered communities.
Households have invested € 73 million in sanitation improvements, including € 50 million through support by partnering financial institutes.

FINISH has been able to leverage significant local financing for safe sanitation. In India, less than 5% of the initial FINISH funding came from Dutch grants.
