637 Student and No toilets

Community correspondent Mister Alam reports from Ganpati Vigha village in Hilsa block of Nalanda district of Bihar, on the lack of sanitation facilities in the village's middle school.

CALL TO ACTION: Call the Block Education Officer for Hilsa Block of Nalanda district, on +91-9939712741, and demand that construction of toilets for the school begin at once.

For the last 8-9 years the two toilets in the local school are in a dilapidated condition. This forces students and teachers alike to wander beyond school premises in order to find an alternative location to relieve themselves. The situation is harder on girl students who are eyed by classmates and passers-by alike. The lack of functional and sanitary toilets on school premises is a direct violation of the RTE Act.

About the Partnership: The Poorest Areas Civil Society (PACS) Programme and Video Volunteers have come together to create the Community Correspondents Network. The videos generated by the network will be able to highlight voices from the margins, providing skills to social communicators to provide advocacy tools to community based organisations.
