Water, Sanitation & Hygiene Project

Sakshi builds toilets at MCD schools and provides hygiene education to slum children and the families and communities they come from to prevent the frequent epidemics of diseases like diarrhoea.

Toilets also dramatically reduce the drop-out rate of schoolgirls

Building Toilets

Sakshi builds toilets at slum schools including government primary schools ensuring they are hygienic, functional and that there is a clean water supply to service them. We build, modernize or repair septic tanks, water supplies and connections, urinals and water stations.

Clean sanitation facilities prevent many debilitating diseases like diarrhoea, dysentery, cholera. Functional and gender-specific facilities prevent the girl child from dropping out.

Providing Hygiene Education

Sakshi teaches children how to maintain personal hygiene as well as how to maintain sanitary conditions in the newly-built toilets. Something as simple as washing hands or learning to flush goes a long way in preventing illness.

Further, children are mobilized as Community Catalysts. Sakshi teaches children how to teach their parents and siblings about the importance of hygiene and how to maintain hygiene and prevent disease despite insufficient sanitation facilities at home.

Children are taught using Sakshi's "Joyful Learning" model where Sakshi teachers utilize role-play, songs, drawing as the primary methods of teaching. Hygiene clubs are established and children are helped to bring out the Vikas newsletter on cleanliness.
