Water & Sanitation

Promotion of Safe drinking water, Sanitation and Hygiene

Mass Education has been working to promote the availability of the safe drinking water, sanitation facilities and to bring changes in hygiene behaviours of the rural masses to control 95% of the common ailments. It has implemented these programmes in about 50 gram panchayats and assisted the villagers not only to construct individual latrines but also to improve village sanitation as well as to maintain water sources. We have conducted number of awareness camps, cultural programmes and trainings to bring about attitudinal changes related to sanitation and personal hygiene. We assisted them to form water and sanitation committees.
