Rehab India Foundation is a non-profit charity actively working in the most backward parts of the country impoverished due to hunger, diseases and illiteracy, and involved in their sustainable development and empowerment.
Currently, Rehab works in 60* village development programmes across the country. This 5-year sustainable programme helps upbring the livelihood, education & health-care of the villagers.
* 38 villages in Bihar, 10 in Murshidabad District of West Bengal,
3 in Assam and 9 in Delhi, Andhra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.
The overall objective of the project is to develop and successfully demonstrate a toilet and a hand-pump for the basic need of the population, hygiene education, water supply and environmental sanitation in rural areas.
To impart life-coping and character building education of high quality, our major concern is the hygiene and health of our children. With strength of more than 200 children per community centre and 50% being girls creates the need for adequate toilet facilities with running water supply is urgent and important.
Children have a right to basic facilities such as school toilets, safe drinking water, clean surroundings and basic information on hygiene. Water, sanitation and hygiene in schools create an enabling environment which secures children’s dignity, safety, health and attendance in classes. Children are more receptive and quick to adopt and sustain change. Thus, Rehab India Foundation provides well ventilated toilets and hand-pumps in each of its community centre.
The need for this project emanated from a base line survey conducted by Rehab India Foundation staff in targeted communities to assess the sanitation needs of these communities and their interaction with the inhabitants for effective participation in an action plan that will address their problems. The project will focus on the most backward villages of Bihar state, covering 36 community centres with approximately 7,200 students and 15,000 villagers for other ages in the community
