The village is greatly improving on the sanitation and hygiene standards. During this visit, we first met with the chairman, VHTs so that we team up to start walking around home to home. We planned to walk around in home which were just digging new latrine pits, home which don’t have latrines, latrines which are not completed as we as home which have finished constructing their facilities. We aimed at encouraging, teaching,monitoring, emphasizing the benefits of sanitation, evaluating the progress of hygiene and the impact done. Among all the 8 members without latrines, 4 of them are the ones remaining amongst 164 homes which were captured during the survey. This shows a great improvement and hence increase in the sanitation and hygiene levels. There are many new latrines constructed. We also aimed to at encouraging the residents to construct sustainable and good standard facilities. Most of the people embraced the program and working hard to improve their sanitation. We also continued to emphasize on the core values of sanitation and also reminded the residents about the challenges and diseases which may result due to open defection. When some of the people in homes without latrines got to understand the lessons taught, they started constructing good standard structures. There is one of the homes which was little bit stubborn and they didn’t respect the new chairman since their dad lost the elections they didn’t want to hear anything about the new chairman. They had for a longtime not had a latrine in their home. After multiple times of visiting this home,they have finally completed their new latrine. They were so happy to have it and called us to visit and open it officially.
