Jharkhand WASH Forum ~ Since 2015, FXBIS, in Jharkhand, has been working in close coordination with the Drinking Water & Sanitation department, Govt.of Jharkhand, the Panchayati Raj Institutions and other non-governmental organizations to bring the WASH (Water, Sanitation and Health) programme to as many communities as possible. Currently, our interventions are in the 34 villages from 5 gram panchayats of district, Ranchi. Our team has managed to gain community acceptance and active participation by converting the WASH programme into an INTEGRATED project, wherein the approach is to catalyse positive changes in domains of livelihoods, education and protection & safety of women, children, along with the interventions on WASH.
In February 2018, FXBIS floated the idea of a collective forum to achieve the objectives of WASH in the entire state of Jharkhand. Other NGOs, such as Plan India, World Vision, Child Fund India, Samriddhi Trust, including the UNICEF, unanimously agreed to launch the forum with FXBIS leading the group.
Congratulations to all participating NGOs for spear-heading this much needed programme more aggressively and all the very best for your first meeting in less than two months of time.
