The “war on pit latrines” is a continuation of Government’s Home Renovation and Sanitation Programme.

Through this programme, Government will make funds available for the construction of modern washroom facilities for over twenty homes in Thibaud.

Since the introduction of the Home Renovation and Sanitation Programme, Government has spent over 20-million dollars on home renovations, directly impacting the lives of over two-thousand individuals.

The programme has been implemented in almost every community across Dominica, as housing is one of the key platforms of this Dominica Labour Party administration.
