Toilet and Hygiene Project for the Girl Child
Prakash Saunshi, Sewa International
Toilet for the Girl child project was conceived by Sewa International in the year 2014 with support from donors in USA and India to provide sanitation facilities to the vulnerable section of our society by overcoming social and cultural norms of accepted practice of open defecation. Jayanthi Ramanan is spearheading this project since then.
The project started in the slum areas of Bangalore and expanded to other parts of Karnataka in 2015. Varanasi became our flagship project with tremendous support from the local villages. The project was expanded to Lucknow, Agra and Tamilnadu in 2017. However, just sanitation facilities do not suffice the overall development for the child and the model was expanded to include sanitation, education, healthcare, and community development to aim at holistic development.
This poster showcases the work Sewa has done in the area of Toilet and Hygiene Project for the Girl Child.
