Sanitation and Clean Water for 60 Dalit Families

by Nandri Vetted since 2015 Site Visit Verified

Summary

In rural India open defecation is still the norm in many poor, backward villages. Women and young girls from households without toilets have to wake up before dawn to attend to their nature's call. Otherwise, they have to hold their bladders and bowels till dusk to venture into the fields to relieve themselves. This project will provide clean water and toilets for 60 families. Indian government grant will pay 50%.

Challenge

Open defecation in darkness puts the health and safety of women at risk. There have been ample number of reported cases of women and female children subjected to teasing, molestation, gang rape, death due to snake bite when they had ventured into dark to relieve themselves. Open defecation is a serious crisis in rural villages which contributes to disease, diarrhea, childhood malnutrition, loss of economic output and violence against women and children.

Solution

The problem will be solved by installing a toilet in each home. This will require plumbing from the local mains to the home. Installation of a toilet bowl and hand wash basin. Access to toilet at home and improved sanitation is as important as obtaining justice and restoring their dignity and self respect.

Long-Term Impact

Open defecation contributes to disease, diarrhea, childhood malnutrition, loss of economic output and violence against women and children. India is such a densely population that they're all walking and stamping on each other's toilet output.
