Poor sanitation and absence of sanitary latrine and defecating in open place by most of the households in rural area is the root cause of poor health & hygiene which is creating severe health hazard and affecting living standard besides poor economic condition. Considering the fact, SMGBK has taken initiative to play a significant role in collaboration with FINISH, a facilitating agency, in bringing initially Nokari, Raghunathpur-Hijoli, Debagram, Kamalpur Gram Panchayat of Nadia District where SMGBK is working for several years, under Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC) in terms of extending facilitation of planning and execution of Low Cost Sanitary Privy.
A base line survey, awareness generation & sensitization along with PRAs have already been conducted by the organization to determine key behaviours and perceptions regarding sanitation, hygiene, water use, ensuring the usage of latrine etc. during the year. Convergence of services following Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan (NBA) is under process. The organization has succeeded to bring all the major stakeholders like District Water & Sanitation Department, Block Development Office and Panchayat in one platform. More than 2000 households have been identified in first phase to provide low cost latrine with latest technology under the Sanitation programme.
