Community access to basic rights entails that people have the opportunity to make informed choices concerning their livelihood. The right to choose is often constrained by political and cultural systems. Global Sanitation Environmental Project encourages people’s entitlement to make choices concerning one of the most important basic needs, Sanitation.
In the free choice regime, institutions will develop skills and respond to needs in the communities they serve, and communities will have opportunities to strengthen their collective efforts for attaining their urgent requirements for water and sanitation services. These are empowering processes that will break the cycle of indifference and unfulfilled needs that entrenches the poverty chain.
