Rather than keep our programs in water/sanitation/hygiene, education, and income generation discreet, GTLI integrates them in cross-disciplinary programs. Income generating activities are part of our water projects so spare parts can be purchased to maintain the wells. Functional Adult Literacy (FAL) school starts with hand washing to reinforce hygiene behaviors. Participation in a income generating projects requires school attendance, because community members need literacy and numeracy to sustainably run their businesses.

adminIntegrate programs so they become mutually reinforcing.
