LEAF Society aims to reduce the practices of open defecation among poor and vulnerable communities thus reducing the economic, social & health burden of vulnerable families due to poor WASH practices. LEAF Society also aims to influence policies of the government to include WASH curriculum in schools, sanitation under priority sector lending, inclusive WASH policy of school sanitation and to provide equitable Personal & Menstrual Hygiene Management for children, women and adolescents. The other large area that LEAF Society addresses includes the issues of poor fecal sludge management & septic tank governance in urban local bodies, small towns and municipalities.
They work aggressively to create dignified WASH assets for poor children enrolled in government schools. They believe children at risk need to be provided with adequate WASH infrastructures such as toilets, urinals, menstrual hygiene facilities and adequate WASH training, in schools. They are constructing school toilets and are trying to fine-tune the policies of government towards the same.
