    Status: In-progress

    Operating Status:

    I have visited the 1st constructed Eco San Toilet at Kamlwati Place(probably first in Eastern U.P. or in U.P.).I have spoken to her. She said , it is great to have toilet at her house. Now, she or any of family member do not need to defecate openly .

    First time, I feel that having toilet can be privilege.

    Thanks PWX team for opportunity . I only want to say miles to go before I sleep....
    Thanks,

    Difference in Cost

    Status: In-progress

    Operating Status:

    As mentioned in our earlier note that we have planned for concrete pan but after discussion it is found ceramic pan is suitable. Sheetal Ceramics told us that pan will cost Rs. 2500 per pan + transportation of Rs. 9000. So cost of 20 pan+ transportation is Rs. 59000. While we have already rs. 20000 for concrete mold. So, We need Rs. 39000 for Eco San pan more than allocated budget..

    Status: In-progress

    Operating Status:

    As we were earlier conveyed that we'll opt for cemented eco san pan.We have discussion with Mason & community. But it emerges from discussion that :

    - It is difficult to develop cemented ECO SAN Pan
    - It is very difficult to clean cemented pan .

    With Consent of community ,It was decided that they'll go for ceramics pan.

    5 people shown interest in construction of their toilelts

    Status: In-progress

    Operating Status:

    Yesterday, I have meeting with community members of Agaya Village. Meeting was held at residence of Aganwani worker Kiran Devi. 16 people were participated in the meting.

    With community, I discussed materials to be used in construction of toilets . 4 people have participated first time in the meeting. Some of them asked difference of Eco san toilets & traditional one.once again discussed basics of ECO san Toilets.They were also told about importance of sanitation through chart & all

    5 people from meeting show their eagerness for construction of eco san toilets.

    Meeting was concluded that they will discuss issues with family & let them also know importance of sanitation.

  • Implementation Phase Project started on 1 Nov, 2012 Preparation Phase

We have constructed 10 eco san toilets.

Sustainability

Creating and measuring long-term impact

Monitoring will be done by next financial year end. It will also try to know number of family members using constructed toilets. If some of them are not using, what is the reason?? Monitoring will also look over major factor such as social acceptance & reactions by others, viewpont of beneficiary & others after members, cleanliness of pan as well as toilets, way of management & usage of feaces & urine.adopted hygine practices adopted etc. During implementation, we have found that defective knowledge mengement. So there is need of greater of awraness campaign. We’ll also include in this campaign as school children will easily grasp it importance & usage. The women SHG members will be motivated to avail Bank loans for the construction of ECOSAN toilets. So that people can get constructed toilet & its use. SES also expects PWX to support bigger number of toilets & their tracking.

Other Issues

Unusual and unexpected issues faced during project execution

Challenges :

There were various challenges during project. It is well known that SES works at grassroot level with its efficient staff. But there were some challenges during the project:
1. Construction of 10 Eco San Toilet was itself a challenge. There were several meeting in SES staff to understand whether we can deliver in this project. Our belief in team & experience in implementation of several past projects led us to implement this project too.
2. Cooperation of the village people was vital to this project.Initially, when staff visited village, it was not easy for staff to convince them over construction of ECO SAN toilet as it reuses excreta & urine as fertilizer. Non Implemntation of project in paringawa village is an example. Initially they were ready for construction but later they refused to part of project. For the project to succeed, behaviour of community needed to change. We do not say that we have changed behaviour of whole village i.e Agaya. But, it has changed among in a segment of village through awareness & community meeting.
3. During the project, delivering of pans has taken time. The reason of delay was waybill. We knew that we need waybill for delivery. But, we did not expect that it’ll take two months. Yet, we have received.
4. When we are working in village, we expect that we can easily manage community meeting. It was also a challenge. As most of people are engaged in agriculture & women play significant role in agriculture. In peak season, it was difficult to gather them but staff has managed to gather them for meeting. So, staff goes one day before meeting & convince them to be part of next day meeting. As target area falls at foothills of Himalaya tarai, so it was also difficult to gather people in winter.

Learnings

Knowledge of project and process for sharing

There was learning during project:
1. Though, the project was successfully implemented in Agaya Village. It was not successful in Paringawa village. During whole project period, it was found that, there were reservations about installing & using of ECO San Toilets. People were still not able to accept food grown using urine or human erxcreta.The reason may be lack of evidence that it is effective in any manner.
2. The targeted society is patriarchal. All decision of maily is taken by man. It was seen majorly men were reluctant for construction of toilets. Women are easily convinced for construction. The reason is, toilet affects their dignity & privacy to large extent.
3. Though, there were reservation about construction of eco san toilets but still there are lage numbers of people who are ready for construction after witnessed built toilets. The need is awareness & information campaign at large level. It will raise the level of acceptance and awareness, because there is no information or constructed eco san toilets in the area.

Impact

People Impacted: 101

People Getting Sanitation: 93

People Getting Other Benefits: 8

Training to 4 Masons & 4 staff of SES.

While interacting with members of Self Help Group & school/college teacher & student. They’ll sensitize on importance of sanitation & drinking water in their lives respectively.
