Efforts Taken to influence Govt. The organisation organised 4-5 networking meeting for scaling up the sanitation and hygiene program at the block. Education department block office passed an order to all the schools at pahadgarh block to cooperate and promote the hygiene activity in their schools. Dharti Started an awareness program on rural water supply scheme at pahadgarh, kailaras, jaura and sabalgarh block with the combined effort of MP Janabhiyaan Parishad. We had prepared a plan to construct combined sanitation facilities at one place for all communities at all the hilly areas and sharing with TSC coordinator and panchayat department. Both are agreed working on the plan during Continues deferent Media person visit in project area.
Challenges: About 50% of the project area is water scarce. 11-Village of the project area are on stony soil so digging for leach pit is a challenge to us. The reach of resources at project area is also a challenge. Very few transportation facilities are available at the project area and charges are also very high. Intersectoral Convergence. Low capacity of Panchayat.
Learning's: Community monitoring system with the support of NGO to stop corruption: At Jaderu Panchayat 3 new school toilet were sanctioned but the sarpanch renovate the old building and showed as new construction. VWSC raised its voice against the issue with our support. After a long debate and verification Janpad panchayat ordered recovery of the funds. Public hearing can proved to be a very good tool to address the problems and solving at local level Systematic efforts would be made to take up non functional existing water sources. With the help of community good models would be created on Water, sanitation and Hygiene program.
Training Requirements: Training and capacity building of project staff. IEC material. Technical and Resource support on Water point Mapper Tool. Training on Advocacy. Training on research methodology. Hygiene Promotion. Exposure of other state work for new staff.
Opportunity for research, Documentation and Advocacy in future Advocacy for promotion of Menstrual hygiene Under NRHM for all over district and its proper implementation. Research on WASH and relation of other activity. Studies the impact of MNREGA on Wash activity and its relation of community health. Joint Monitoring mechanisms on both health program and water and sanitation facilities in the village
