Towards maintaining an open defecation free and clean environment, through the Swachh Bharat Mission, the Government of India launched a programme to ensure the communities remain clean by raising awareness of use of toilets. Toilet use is essential to the survival and development of all children in India and around the world, as exposure to human waste causes diseases such as diarrhoea.
India has the highest number of diarrhoea related deaths among children under five worldwide. Diarrhoea and other sanitation related diseases can prevent children from being able to absorb the nutrients in their food, leading to undernutrition.
Open defecation has also been linked to stunting. In India, almost 38% of all children under five are stunted, meaning their physical and cognitive development is reduced, often resulting in poor educational outcomes. The repercussions of stunting can be felt beyond the individual child and can impact entire communities and generations in terms of economic and social development. Stunted bodies, stunted brains, and stunted lives.
Considering the importance of Toilets, the common people are being encouraged by the government in construction of proper toilets and eliminating the menace of defecation in open areas.
In collaboration with Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust, JMI has taken an initiative towards this noble cause of toilet construction. As per this initiative 2 toilets and 10 urinals for both boys and Girls were constructed in National Primary school at Vikramasingapuram, Papanasam, Tamil Nadu.
JMI has also extended support towards waste water disposal soakpit, rainwater harvesting pit , electrical & plumbing works, Art and Painting works for these Toilets.
It has been a great initiative and has directly benefited students by manyfold.
