Challenge

A substantial proportion of ill health in India can be attributed to lack of safe drinking water, poor sanitation and hygiene practices. Information related to disease burden due to improper hygiene practices and provision of sanitation facilities in India is lacking The tribal people, especially women and girl children, at Peddakaragraharam village do not have access to a basic toilet and struggling a lot for getting the toilet facility. The living conditions are so pathetic and unhygienic.

Solution

The toilet facility in the village will solve the problem and enhance the health and quality of life of the poor and vulnerable tribal women and girl children by improving sustainable access to sanitation and hygiene. 35 individual toilets will sort out the burning issue of sanitation problem at their door step. When a poor man's family owns a house with toilet facility it helps in giving a self identity to the entire family. It will also have positive impact on the overall standard of living.

Long-Term Impact

This project will ensure better hygiene practices, reducing diarrhea and other communicable diseases. The physical stress that the women and girls go through can be avoided.
