Summary

In addition to building, managing, and operating sanitation facilities, SHRI is now also assisting with the COVID-19 response in India. To this end, SHRI is asking for donation that will help provide households with rations for three months. These rations will help ensure that families avoid the deleterious consequences of India's second COVID wave.

Challenge

Over 600 million people in India defecate in the open daily because they have no toilet, leaving 100,000 tons of disease-spreading human feces out in the open. Although India's government is funding the construction of toilets, it does not ensure the maintenance of this infrastructure, thus perpetuating open defecation. This project will help ensure that SHRI's current facilities are maintained, thus enabling 4,000 women, men, and children to use SHRI's toilets every day for an entire year.

Solution

SHRI improves access to toilets throughout rural India to end open defecation. This project will help SHRI ensure that this infrastructure is maintained and sustained for an entire year. This is vital as toilet maintenance is a key predictor of toilet use.

Long-Term Impact

This project will enable thousands of women, men, and children to use the toilet every single day for an entire year. This will dramatically improve health, social, and economic outcomes, thereby helping people break out of the cycle of poverty.
