LEaders Educate on the Importance of Toilets in the Home

Posted on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 by LEAD

Vaidehi Pai and his partners Dharmaraj, Sudhir, Akarsh,Vaidehi ( College of Agriculture, Dharwad) decided to tackle a very sensitive topic for their LEAD project: the importance of toilets in the home. They noticed, on their visits to Narendra village, that many people were defecating openly in the areas around where they lived. It was clear that this was not only inflicting health issues but also personal shame, particularly for women. These LEaders visited Narendra and explained the health risks associated with this issue, and the importance of investing in a toilet for each home. Although the people they met with were somewhat embarrassed and resistant to speaking openly about such a topic, the LEaders felt that their message was communicated effectively, and that their initiative has the potential to be implemented on an even larger scale.
