Description

300 people living in a residential block within an urban area in western India (Limbdi, Gujarat state) lack access to toilets close to their home. And this is something they are entitled to, under a government scheme. Nevertheless, they are forced to walk long distances to the closest public toilets, where they face various forms of abuse from anti-social elements.  Apart from the inconvenience and the loss of dignity, this has led to a number of diseases within this community. 

These people have organized themselves and demonstrated in front of civic authorities. But that wasn’t sufficient; their situation has not improved the least bit.
