Help Villagers In Halgara Build Toilets

More people have access to a cell phone than a toilet! About 70 percent of households in India don’t have access to toilets, whether in rural areas or urban slums. Roughly 60 percent of the country’s 1.2 billion people still defecate in the open.

NITK Surathkal Whatsapp group discussion turned into something concrete, we have decided to support atleast 100 toilets at village Halgara and Rajewadi (Tal: Nilanga, District: Latur, Maharashtra) to make the village open defecation free.

Why did we choose Halgara village?
Halgara village has demonstrated strong community participation in the past. Also Halgara is one of our batchmate's village (Datta Patil). Learn about the village here https://www.facebook.com/halgaravillage/

Here is action plan:
Build quality toilet as shown in picture at cost of 22,000/- INR. Here is breakdown of source of funding for one toilet
  • Govt Of India (Swachh Bharath) 12,000 INR
  • Beneficiery Villager's contribution 5000 INR
  • Your Contribution 5000 INR
1 Toilet = 5000 INR or $90 approx.

Number of toilets needed at Halgara, Rajewadi Village is 700. Yahoo has funded for 200+ toilets, we want to support atleast 100 toilets.
Construction will start on 15th August 2017.

Feeling Inspired, donate now - support one or many toilets.
