We take for granted many things in our lives and access to clean water and proper sanitation are certainly two things we expect in society today. For many people in rural India they do not have that “luxury”. The lack of toilets and safe drinking water in the villages causes many health problems and diseases. With no sanitation our poor families have to defecate in the fields beside their homes.
Proper sanitation brings numerous benefits such as reducing diseases and improving the quality of life. Nandri recognises the importance of proper sanitation and has given priority to helping our families build their own toilets. We have formed 238 mothers groups in the target area and the mothers are very keen to build toilets in their own homes.
These motivated mothers are creating a revolution in their villages by making people aware of the importance of hygiene, toilets and proper sanitation. Nandri also provides financial support for the construction of the toilets. The newly built toilets are a huge source of pride for the families and make their lives so much more dignified, healthy and hygienic.
