Donate a toilet for a very poor family living in a village, INR 12000

Gram Chetna Kendra (GCK) runs an awareness programme in villages in the Sambhar block to reduce unhygienic and unhealthy defecating practices. Open defecation doesn't just lead to disease, but is also very humiliating for women and young girls as there is no privacy. They prefer to go either early in the mornings or late in the evenings.

How It Works

• GCK assists in construction of toilets (3 x 4 x 6 feet) on the beneficiary's land.
• Village-level committees recommend families, which are then selected based on their socio-economic conditions after physical verification by GCK's core team.
• The beneficiary procures the building material.
• The construction takes up to 10 days for completion.
• Neighbours also can share the toilet with the family.

The Statistics

• The NGO proposes to build about 50 toilets in the year 2015-16 through donations from GiveIndia.

Construction of Toilet
In this remote area of Sambhar Block, Dist. Jaipur, Rajasthan most of the families do not have toilets in their homes and use open fields for defication. It is very humiliating for women and young girls as there is no privacy.Due to this, stomach related infections are rampant in the area.
We visited the area & saw the miseries of the women. Santosh Bano lives in Banshipura village. There are 7 members in the family including two young girls & elderly parents. They are all forced to go in the open. It was decided to construct a toilet for them. Our social workers advised them to give up the bad habit of defecation in open and how it effects the environment and spread disease.
After construction of toilet, the family of Santosh Bano does not have to go for defecation in the open. Both young daughers and elderly parents now feel relaxed. This also reduced the cases of diarrhea and other diseases. Now the familiy is more aware about health and hygiene problems.
