Impact – Latrine crisis solved through proactive community solutions

80 families of Karatutha village in Odisha were suffering without toilets in their houses. That was until Community Correspondent, Anupama Sathy made a video about the same in 2015.
Due to lack of toilets, these families had to defecate out in open. It was difficult for the women to go far from their houses especially during monsoons. After the video was made, Anupama went to the Water and Sanitation Department to understand the process for obtaining the amount of Rs. 12,000 offered under the Swachh Bharat (Clean India)scheme for building toilets and informed the villagers about it. Once the toilets were constructed according to the guidelines given by the government, the beneficiaries got Rs.12000 for the toilets constructed by them.
Thus she made sure that these families got the toilets as well as the money to construct them under the Clean India campaign. The campaign was launched by the Government of India to clean the streets, roads and infrastructure of the country’s 4,041 statutory cities and towns. It aims to eradicate open defecation by 2019.
