These days words like, “School Led Total Sanitation” is repeating as proverb on the mouth of people who are working on the sector of Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH). It’s very hard to apply practically, rather than just to preach about creating Open Defecation Free (ODF) Communities.
Though the people from rural communities do not know about the importance of sanitation and toilet, urban and peri-urban communities know at least, a little about such issues. But the intended progress has not been seen, actually is the pity part. Pakucha Community, just one and half kilometer far from Dhulikhel Municipality consists only 40 percent toilets. People from the community are expecting aids from any NGOs and Municipality to construct the toilets on their houses even still in these days as well.
