Construction of toilets, drinking water area and wash area in 4 Government schools, supported by YUVA Unstoppable, in Bangalore North and South
Basic good sanitation conditions, improved hygiene practices, safe drinking water sources and adequate water for washing can prevent water related diseases, other illnesses, and death, especially in children. In order to improve the sanitation conditions in selected Government schools, Vidyanikethan is implementing a project titled Sanitation for Education. Supported by Yuva Unstoppable through CAF, Vidyanikethan identified a few state government of Karnataka run schools that are in dire need of better toilet, urinals and wash room facilities.
As per the project requirement, in the first year of the project,(2015-2016) Vidyanikethan worked extensively in the schools where its work included assessment of the conditions of the toilets, wash area, re-designing, construction and renovation. This work was very critical as the toilets were dysfunctional and the water supply was not regular, if not nil in some schools.
In this year, (2016-2017), the project entered yet another important phase. The work done as per the construction and renovation needed to be maintained in order for the children to benefit. Accordingly, the school students continued to be sensitized about proper usage of toilets and hand practices.
