The village of Tilla in Niger has raised the bar on cleanliness and hygiene. A sanitation committee is in charge of galvanizing and promoting the village's overall health and cleanliness, making specific members responsible for different priorities. Each family now has a functional and well-maintained latrine. With neither subsidy nor financial incentive, all the heads of households built latrines with locally available materials, such as bricks and clay dried in the sun, called banco.
