Dear Patrons,
Good Afternoon !

Wish you all a Very Happy Holi !

I am excited to announce you that Samagra is currently building awesome toilets in 100 rural schools in Raigad (Maharashtra).

As you might know, many rural low-income schools do not have toilets and girls drop out of school because of lack of sanitation facilities.

We have taken up this project to use our knowledge and knowledge of our awesome partners (in areas of design, logistics, supply chain, cleaning and construction) to impact lives of over 1500 girls in less than 4 Months.

We could NOT have done this without you.

I am so grateful to you for your support

Thank you,

Regards
Swapnil

Let us Protect Dignity of Our Daughters

It is an undeniable fact that the absence of safe toilet adds to the vulnerability of women. 

A man can unzip anywhere without fear and shame. It is the women, who lack access to private toilets and have to wake up before sunrise or wait for the sky to get dark and walk miles to find the right and safe place to defecate. If not a human issue, toilets certainly are a women’s issue.

After the birth of my daughter, I moved back to India to provide clean toilets so that no daughter, no mother or sister ever has to lose her dignity just in relieve herself.

Join me in protecting dignity of 1 daughter at a time.

You only have few days to become part of our journey and to create enormous impact in the lives of 1000 Girls.

SCENARIO:

Imagine being a mother of a bubbly 12 year old girl in a house, the size of 2 dining tables, in an urban slum.

You don't have a toilet not just because of a financial crunch, but also because of a space crunch. In dense Urban slums, in-home toilet is rarely an option. So Community toilets are an appropriate sanitation solution. But many urban slums do not have community toilets and even if community toilets are present, they are FILTHY and unused as not properly maintained.

CONSEQUENCES:

At dinner you eat little and drink less to reduce the pressure of the basic call of nature, because you know that it might be too difficult to find a clean toilet and too dangerous to find a safe place amidst the evil forces of night; when men shine torch on women defecating, or hide behind the adjacent bush to peep and pelt stones to tease.

Moreover, you also ask your daughter not to take more than a few sips of water else she would have to step out of the house at night, And you know it's not going to be safe. You get up early in the morning, walk a mile (or two or three) to find a spot away from the normal gaze and finally relieve. And this continues. Day-after-day-after-day until eternity. Holding your pee and poo leads to severe health complications like UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections).


SAMAGRA SOLUTION:


Samagra brings you its award-winning Toilet Design and Operation Model called "LooRewards" through which we provide clean, hygienic and safe toilet access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to 1 girl child for a ONE TIME INVESTMENT just $20 or INR 1000 investment.
