Thou under Swatch Bharath Abhiyan the sanitation prg has budget for rural house hold, due to lack of awareness and lack of implementation techniques it has not reached the village community. Similarly for rainwater harvesting the lack of awareness and ignorance in maintaining natural water bodies such as ponds, wells and community water tanks has led to shortage of portable water or no water in the area. This particular stretch of our implementation areas has 90HH which has less than 10 toilets.
We have realized in the beginning of our project community participation and awareness will make the programme successful
