Sanitation and Hygiene - Case Study #7
PDF File Size: 688 KB | Download   
Shanti lives with her young son in Birendra Nagar VDC in the Chitwan district of Nepal. She is a dalit from the poorest stratum of society, and a migrant with no right to permanent membership in the community. Her husband has gone to India to work in whatever casual labouring job he can find. She occupies a flimsy house on public land behind the Shri Rastriya Primary School, always fearful that if she upsets the local community they will send her packing.
This school, where her boy attends Grade 11, occupies an important place in Shanti’s life. Firstly, it represents the family’s future hopes. And secondly, the school’s outreach programme for healthy living has impinged on Shanti’s own lifestyle and that of other women in the neighbourhood. All the houses in the designated ‘school catchment’ — a
total of 244 — are targeted for full sanitization by 2009, meaning that they will all have abandoned the practice of ‘open defecation’ and built their own toilet.
The Shri Rastriya Primary School was originally targeted by the UNICEF-supported School Sanitation and Hygiene Education(SSHE) programme. This imparted a sense of responsibility among students for their own hygiene and sanitary behaviour. Schools also involved Parent-Teacher Associations: Shanti is a member of the PTA at Shri Rastriya Primary School.
