This is a story about a small village in India. A small village with little sanitation, little electricity and no reliable source of drinking water.
 
One of the common reasons of people falling ill In villages is absence of toilets infrastructure. Exposed feces are one of the main causes of air and water borne diseases.

Enabling people to use toilets is an important way to prevent adults, and mainly children, from falling ill. 
 
I arrived in India in 2012 and started working with a small village in Uttar Pradesh. Together we have built 143 eco toilets so far, one of the area’s first permeable roads, and other projects all in the areas of education and health care.
 
I managed to bring the community together and communicated the benefits of what we are doing in the village. Today, this small village understands the importance of hygiene and healthcare. Children in the village are educating their elders to use toilets and keep the neighborhood clean. The response from this village gives me hope that I can reach out to more such villages and bring the much needed difference.
 
Help me make our villages healthy and happy!
