As usual, we are continuously trying to empower women through small business. We are setting up a lady named Sonapati as an example. She started a small shop where she sells daily used things like soap, oil, rice and others.

Clean Toilets Recognised

Kharibari Village, India

 

Our constant efforts have finally paid off, as now all 17 families have their own toilet and are using them. But the biggest challenge is getting villagers to continue to use them. Generally, it seems that people start following instructions for a few days but then return back to their old habits.

Toilet Use Faces Obstacles

Toilet Use Faces Obstacles
Dhoker Jhara Village, India

In Dhoker Jhara Village, 20 families were taught how to use the bathrooms and the procedures for keeping them clean. Amongst the 20 families, 7 of them are currently using their bathrooms regularly. Reasons for not using the bathrooms include no commode inside the bathroom and broken doors. In Dhoker Jhara, six people are using the kitchen garden. Villagers are ready for rabi (wheat) crop farming.

Many farmers from Dhoker Jhara are planting mustard and wheat.                   

Thank you,

Babujan

Clean Toilet Award

The Clean Toilet Award

Kharibari Village, India

 

As per the plan established during our staff meeting in Gangtok, our first goal was to create awareness about keeping toilets neat and clean. Though we have been informing them over and over about the benefits of hygienic toilets, it is still a challenge as villagers often do not pay attention.
