A partnership concept is proposed, using principles adapted from those of franchising, for the operation and maintenance of infrastructure.

• A franchise’s success is based upon replication of successful previous experience, clear lines of responsibility and incentive, efficient logistics and trained workers.
• Partnerships, each between an experienced services operator (the franchisor) and a micro-entrepreneur, can in many instances collaborate with public sector institutions (e.g. municipalities, schools) in the operation and maintenance of water and sanitation infrastructure that they own.
• By harnessing franchising principles, owners’ existing budgets would be used more effectively, and quality and reliability of service delivery would improve.

Since January 2009, Sarar Transformación has been providing improved access to safe water and sustainable sanitation to approximately 2000 students and teachers in 17 pre-school, primary and secondary schools in the upper Copalita watershed, Oaxaca, Mexico.  Drawing from its extensive experience with the SARAR participatory education methodology -and the related PHAST approach-, the program involves the entire school community in the assessment process, choice of technical options, and trains students, teachers and parents in the use and maintenanceof the facilities, as well as proper hygiene. Through such training, Sarar-T has introduced and fostered the uptake of alternative dry sanitation facilities, a previously uncommon technology in schools of the region, which conserve water and keep waste out of waterways.
