Through what is now known as the CLTS approach, it is explained to communities defecating in the open that they end up eating each others sh*t! The resulting shock/shame results in the communities demanding for/adopting more hygienic sanitation practices. In 2004, Plan introduced CLTS in over 200 villages in the Dinajpur District of Bangladesh.  By 2007, all villages in Plan's target area had eliminated open defecation and the entire population has access to hygienic latrines.
