Samerth and Arghyam have partnered since 2007 to provide safe drinking water to people living in remote hamlets of Kutch district. This project was a sub-set of a larger project in order to work intensively in a few hamlets to create model Watsan villages. The project provided families in this region with safe and sustainable drinking water by promoting conjunctive use by developing local water sources and accessing Narmada water wherever feasible. A key objective of the project was to promote safe sanitation practices and toilets were constructed and hygiene messages were imparted.
5. Sanitation hardware was installed in a number of villages where more than 35 families were motivated to construct single pit toilets and more than 15 families were motivated to construct soak-pits.
