Goals of Nirmal Waari initiative are to showcase how to avoid pollution due to open defecation during waari and improve Usage Of Toilet In Rural Area.
Through Nirmal Waari we want to tab opportunities for
Mass education by providing toilets facilities & Basic toilet Training as well as public participation.Mass education would happen through mass gatherings, cultural programs, Schools etc. As part of Swachh Bharat we are promoting use of toilets. Government is providing toilets in the kumbh mela. Similarly for waari there is need to provide toilets. This will result in toilet adoption in rural areas.
Post Waari 33 destinations are impacted due to open defecation. Multiple waterborne diseases spread across these villages; this can be avoided by providing toilets & creating awareness.
- Provide toilets on waari route.
- Create awareness against open defecation and promote use of toilets and proper sanitation.
- Showcase Benefits Of Usage Of Toilet In Rural Area By Volunteering Connect.
Seva Sahayog Foundation is working to provide better sanitation facilities so that the route through which the Waari passes, remains clean and the post-waari problems are reduced, which in turn will help in better health for the villagers. Part 1 of that initiative was super successful, and known to a lot many people via various media reports – Times of India, Loksatta etc.
