Our programme

Sanitation, health & environment are three important components of Indian Development Scenario in general and Purulia district of W.B. in particular. Purulia district fares poorly in comparison to its counterparts in the state. People are unaware of proper sanitation, health and hygiene.

They are still guided by superstitions and age-old beliefs. So, sanitation is an important factor for fastening health among people as well as sustaining environment. Lack of sanitation in rural society is primarily responsible for disease, death, morbidity and malnutrition of children, women and others in society.

With a few to make the rural people aware in respect of sanitation, health and hygiene and for proper implementation of sanitation program in rural areas, a Sanitary Mart has been set up at Jargo with the financial assistance from UNICEF, Govt. of West Bengal under the supervision of Purulia Zila Parishad. The main objective of the program is to install low cost latrine to individual households and in the Primary Schools and to build up hygienic behaviors by creating awareness and behavior change communication among the targeted population
