Poor access to sanitation services can expose vulnerable groups – particularly women and girls – to sexual, psychological, and physical violence, along with insect and animal attacks. This was the major concern of Gangabai for her daughters, a resident of village Meghlakali of Ratlam district in the state of Madhya Pradesh. With the help of ASADS, Gangabai constructed a sanitation unit near her house. Now, they don’t have to go far away.
“Earlier, we had the fear of insects and wild animals. We even had to fear for our dignity and prestige. But, after the construction of the sanitation near the house, we don’t have the fear anymore.” says Gangabai with a confident attitude
With the support of 15,000 INR from ASADS, Galli Bai constructed a proper sanitation unit at her house. With the construction within the household premises, now all the family members do not have to travel to nearby stream early in the morning or late at night to alight themselves or even for bathing. “After the help from ASADS, we don’t have to worry about privacy, timing, and safety. Now we don’t have to travel to nearby streams early or late, thus, saving our time and dignity. We thank ASADS for their kind help” says Galli Bai with a smiling face.
