Awareness about hygienic sanitary practices and the technology suited that area – Ecosan increased among the villagers with a resulting increase in demand for Ecosan toilets. Incidence of infection from contaminated water decreased substantially after the project. The project also focused on gender empowerment and there was an increased involvement from women in the planning and management of water and sanitation in the village.
