Glad to see that the post ends at community-level execution of sanitation efforts, which is where it sounds like it should be. Also, glad to see that the marriage quote is set within the context of a complete village initiative (some of the PR around the marriage and sanitation approach, at least on the surface, seems to be around individual households, which sounds completely ridiculous - particularly in a country like India.)

That said, is it necessary that government needs to fund sanitation initiatives, even if channeled through NGOs and the community? Are there mechanisms to mobilize community level funds for sanitation efforts (e.g. to purchase subsidized toilets & plumbing)?
