Programme: Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)
Programme Summary :
Lokshakti Samajsevi Sanstha with financial support of WaterAid India is implementing the “Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)” Program because we observed from our past experience that the PRI is the first legal responsible unit for implementing the WASH program at the village level. The main role of the service providers is to support the people in making this program a success. But, both PRI and service providers aren’t much aware about the WASH program and due to the lack of their knowledge and interest, they do not have the capacity to avail WASH facilities in the rural villages. WASH program wasn’t progressing in the Rajnandgaon district. Hence, the organisation (LSS) planned to create campaign in the Rajnandgaon district which would strengthen the PRIs, build the accountability of the service providers and creating awareness among the communities for their rights so that the program may progress speedily and the WASH program will reach to the deprived community.
