Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)

When Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) conditions are poor, those most vulnerable to the risks of malnutrition, ill health and, potentially, death are children. In our area, the overall WASH conditions are poor: problems include contaminated drinking water, a lack of toilets and widespread open defecation, and a lack of knowledge and understanding of the need for good hygiene practices.

As part of our campaign to combat malnutrition, we seek to fill the gaps in WASH provision in the villages, helping communities to take advantage of government toilet-building schemes, building suitable toilets where necessary, and improving access to clean drinking water (CDW) systems. Our Balsakhis, as well as those who run the Balwadis and Ananwadis, teach children and mothers correct WASH practices. Community events are conducted to raise awareness of WASH practices through street plays, puppet shows and pamphlets. (See also WASH)
