Awareness on Water, sanitation & Hygiene-related Issues

FXBIS organizes orientation camps on to promote safe water, sanitation and hygiene, involving community participation and youth advocacy. It believes that such programmes in hygiene can make a significant impact on the overall health and development of a growing nation. Such an empowered society can develop itself and depend less on outside assistance.

Safe handling of drinking water, safe disposal of wastewater, safe disposal of human excreta, disposal of solid waste and house-hold sanitation and food hygiene are some of the core issues addressed in our outreach. Through events such as “Global Hand-washing Day” observed across all project locations, the state teams promote personal hygiene among children. A marked improvement in school attendance has been noted as a consequence.
