The Container Based Sanitation (CBS) Alliance was formed in November 2016. It is a coalition of CBS practitioners around the world with extensive experience in developing and providing CBS services. The founders of the CBSA are Clean Team (Ghana), Loowatt (Madagascar), Sanivation and Sanergy (Kenya), SOIL (Haiti) and x-runner (Peru). Sanitation First (India) has joined as a member as well.
Groups affiliated with CBSA include, MoSan (Guatemala), re.source sanitation, Non-Water Sanitation and WSUP. We believe we can be more effective at accomplishing progress collectively compared to each of us operating in isolation.
Days for Girls was founded in 2008 and is a nonprofit organisation that increases access to menstrual care and education by developing global partnerships, cultivating social enterprises, mobilising volunteers, and innovating sustainable solutions that shatter stigma and limitations associated with menstruation for improved health, education and livelihoods. Over 150 enterprises represent a diverse group of local leaders who are trained to produce and sell Days for Girls Kits, provide women's health education, and advocate for menstrual health and hygiene (MHH) in their communities. This Social Enterprise Program cultivates locally-driven menstrual health leadership and entrepreneurship in low and middle-income communities around the world. Days for Girls has regional offices located in Ghana, Guatemala, Nepal, and Uganda. These offices support the enterprises in their regions and advocate for MHH by building connections with policymakers, coalitions, and organizations who can advance, accelerate and amplify the importance of menstrual health in improving education and livelihood outcomes for women and girls.

WASTE is an NGO established in 1983 headquartered in Den Haag, the Netherlands. WASTE is specialised in business development and innovative financing in sanitation and solid waste management. WASTE has a substantial portfolio of multi-country projects in Asia and Africa of programme design, enterprise development, innovative financing and system design from collection to resource recovery and reuse of solid and liquid waste.
WASTE’s main approach of the Diamond model is to establish linkage between demand, businesses, financiers and governments in order to establish a local structure and participatory process that increases the likelihood of sustainable sanitation and solid waste management. WASTE has achieved 1 million toilets constructed by trained MSMEs and leveraged local financing for safe sanitation (€73 million, in which €50 million comes from MFIs with less than 5% of initial grant). The model has been expanded to Kenya, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Uganda and Tanzania for scalable solution in sanitation (finishmondial.org). With the Diamond model approach, the programme is also looking at circular economy in sanitation and therefore supporting resource recovery and reuse of faecal sludge businesses in FINISH Mondial targeted countries including India.
