The importance of Sanitation in our lives


Proper sanitation facilities improve  the well being of the whole community and prevents the spread of a number of diseases, including diarrhea, cholera and polio. The basic lack of a toilet means our Nandri families have to endure the indignity of defecating in the fields, putting their health and the health of others at risk. 


Education is the key.  We are educating our mothers in the importance of basic hygiene and cleanliness.  For example washing your hands frequently to prevent the spread of germs and diseases. We distribute educational information and by educating the women, they will in turn educate their families.  Nandri also organises local doctors and nurses to speak to our mothers groups on the importance of hygiene and sanitation. 

We make having a toilet possible.  Nandri is subsidising loans to families. The government in India provides grants but for poor families this is not enough to build their own toilet.  A loan from Nandri enables them to build a basic toilet and this makes such a difference to our families lives. Access to proper sanitation is something we take for granted every day.  For our families, proper sanitation is changing and enriching the lives of our Nandri communities, keeping them healthier and bringing greater dignity to their lives. Thank you to all our sponsors for making it all possible.
