CAMPAIGNING FOR HYGIENIC TOILETS-A MEGA PROJECT
(To provide toilet facility to each household of entire village.)

On the account of lack of toilet facility in the villages of this area , there are grave problems related to hygiene and cleanliness in addition to problems related to safety and dignity to women folk and inconvenience to old ,disabled and sick people , especially in rainy season, due to lack of light at night. There are also incidences of snake bites on this acoount during monsoon. However, there was hardly any awareness to this serious issue among villagers till date. This scenario changed significantly after Nandigram constructed individual toilets for 175 households of Ghanveri village and demands in this regard started trickling in from other villages.Nandigram has now taken this work as a mission and has constructed 741 toilets in 10 villages uptill now.

It has now embarked upon an ambitious program, which is first of its kind in this side of rural Gujrat, and has planned to construct 300 toilets in 2012-13. It is proposed to construct 300 toilets every year and 3000 toilets in 10 years. The estimated budget is Rs. 15-18 lacs every year and 1.5-1.8 crore in 10 years. Generous help is solicited from well-intended people who are socially sensitive to the plight of rural folk for want of this basic facility.
