Every monthly donation helps families like Laxman get access to sanitation
Laxman Landge is 45 years lives in Paithan with his family. Due to the lack of sanitation facilities, the family defecates in the open. They walk quite a distance to defecate and have to navigate rains, snakes and stray animals.
The womenfolk defecate only either late at night or early mornings even while pregnant. That is when the rural water and sanitation project by Marathwada Gramin Vikas Sanstha (MGVS) came to their aid. A proper toilet with drainage was constructed next to his house.
This intervention has shown a positive change in their family. They have not only understood the importance of a toilet for good sanitation and general health but also educate their neighbors on good sanitation habits.
