In the rural areas of Jharkhand, infrastructure for providing safe water and effective management of human wastes is either inadequate or missing. This project therefore aims to assess the existing water and sanitation situation and related health risks, identifying potential demand for safe water and sanitation. It seeks to create awareness within the target population on the basic principles of health, hygiene, and safe water, ensuring a child’s right to protection and care. FXB India Suraksha will also mobilise the local youth and women’s groups to develop local leadership in the areas of water and sanitation. It will facilitate community access to related government schemes and programs, making the government more responsive to community issues and inclusive development.
FXB India Suraksha aims to facilitate the eradication of poverty for vulnerable and marginalised children and their families through the creation of a physical and economic environment that allows them to lead their lives with self-esteem, dignity and economic self-sufficiency. Their specialisations and experiences range from environmental management to health, education, nutrition, and psychosocial support. They build collective capacities of families to enable self-sufficiency through implementation of targeted interventions in health, nutrition, education, hygiene, sanitation, and income generation.
