Clean & Strong India

The picture of India looks beautiful but still today there are some of the problems faced by millions of people across India. I want to highlight some of the issues where we live in a country where 597 million people defecating in the open because of lack of toilets and financial issues. All these elements affects the basic health and hygiene of the people. Villages are mostly affected as most of the remote villages lack public toilets and they are forced to defecate in open. Childrens as well as adults face various health related issues and their hygiene is badly affected due to poor intake of food and lack of sanitation facilities.

The women of India has reached to various peaks across the globe and we also speak about empowerment and development of women but are we providing them with basic facilities like toilets ?. The Prime Minister Of India Mr.Modi also raised an issue for proper toilets and sanitation facilities for women where he expressed his grief and started the initiative to build toilets across India for women. The Prime Minister also raised an issue that we need to respect our women and we should not risk the dignity of millions of women. Rural and remote villages are affected at a large note where women have to travel several kilometers to relive themselves.The hardship they have to undertake is unbearable and defecating in open also puts them into risk and their health is also affected. Poor sanitation facilities leads to rise in the ailments and diseases to not only women but also children’s, There are maximum number of cases of Diarrhea suffered to women and children due to poor sanitation facilities.Poor sanitation has led to numerous cases of rapes and molestation of women and young girls.

Drainage system is also poorly prepared and barely maintained where the public toilets stink and give rise to mosquitoes and other germs and insects which causes various diseases and people are forced to defecate in open leaving them with no other option.The corrupt officials do not bother to look at the condition of these toilets and the money for the maintenance goes in their greedy pockets.We are living in 21st Century and it is a shame that we still do not have any adequate toilets and other sanitation facilities for the women.

Hopefully the Prime Minister of India have started the imitative to build toilets across India for women and we need to support the cause for the betterment of our women and children and we should also pledge to keep and respect the dignity of women.Alongside HUL’s sanitation brand Domex currently runs the Domex Toilet Academy (DTA) programme which is known as “Toilet for Babli” the term “Babli” is used to represent all the young girls of rural India where they are forced to defecate in open due to lack of toilets and sanitation facilities hence the Domex Toilet Academy (DTA) programme was launched on 19th November 2013 where the toilet academy builds toilets which are accessible and affordable while explaining to people about various benefits of clean toilets and their advantages. They have made lot of efforts and they have produced good results in the villages of Maharashta & Orrisa. Domex Aim to build  24000 toilets by 2015 in rural areas faced with the problem of open defecation.
