#Success! In our adopted village Hadiabad, Bihar has been declared Open Defecation Free (ODF), ahead of projected timelines.
Much of the credit for this stunning success goes to the women of the town, who took courses in sanitation and health, learned how to build toilets, and learned about many important issues, led by our facilitator Renu Singh at the head of an all-women Sanitation & Hygiene Committee.
In a special meeting, villagers have also vowed that they will not defecate in the open, signaling an important social shift in the way open defecation and sanitation are viewed. #OpenDefecation #ODF #WomenEmpowerment #cVET #Sanitation #GoHadiabad!
