Awareness about personal health and hygiene and universal sanitation programme continue since 2006 and we have developed expertise in this sector. Right now, we have been implementing the programme in seven Gram Panchayats of Purulia district in collaboration with government body at the Block levels. Our main activities for the programme include:selection of construction labourers, procurement of standard construction/sanitary materials, produce sanitary items, erection of sanitary structure, follow up peoples participation in the programme, attend various meetings, submit reports at regular intervals, networking with various government agencies and community based organization to ensure success of the programme.
Due to our active intervention, advocacy, public campaign, we have been able to extend services to eligible common people. Community people are now aware about the utility of complete sanitation arrangement to maintain standard hygiene and health systems in the district of Purulia.
During last financial year we have been able to complete 200 sanitary latrine, covering 200000 populations in the Purulia district. All the families in the district are now utilising the systems that help to promote standard practices of hygiene and health in the Balarampur Block of Purulia district.
