Description

In Nepal, only 30% of the rural population has access to toilets. 70% of childhood-illnesses are water-borne, which account for over 13,000 child deaths every year.

Amid this bleak scenario, ‘School-led Total Sanitation’ campaigns seem to hold much promise. The approach involves encouraging school children to take the lead raising awareness about sanitation/ health-related issues in their communities.

It has been learnt that that there are distinct advantages of putting children at the centre of such campaigns: adults are much more open to criticism and suggestions from children than from other adults.
