A significant number of the marginalized population groups in Jharkand, India are exposed to very poor living and working conditions. One of the detriments of their quality of life is unhygienic and limited sanitation, and open defecation remains a problem. Because of this migrant workers are at risk of being prone to hazardous diseases and health problems. This project will offer an effective means to address this situation by providing sanitation access.
Maitri provides sanitation facilities to migrant workers in Jharkand free of cost. Particular attention will be given to supply of clean water, good operating conditions and proper maintenance.
We will improve hygiene and promote health for migrant workers in Jharkand, through provision of good latrine services allowing them to rise out of unsanitary conditions. The latrine facilities will make a potentially important contribution to reducing open defecation and improve hygiene practices.
