Case Study


Before deployment of project most of the Gram Panchayats (GPs) and Blocks of state were non-ODF GPs, the diarrhoea was the most prevalent killer of Neonates and Children, the aspect of community sanitation and collective time bound effort was missing so as to make Villages, GPs, Blocks and the district, ODF. 

The experience of Government to engage community for adopting collective change was limited.  The cadre required to accomplish this task was missing so as to motivating community and technology promotion. For behavioural change of the society, a trained workforce was needed that could trigger communities. This involved taking the community through a participatory process. 


The objective was to provide safety, security and convenience, especially for women and children, by eliminating the shameful habit of open defecation across the state.

  • ODF-Sustainability: Access to a toilet and continued behavior change
  • Solid Waste Management: Effective management of solid waste by at least 80% of households and all public places
  • Liquid Waste Management: Effective management of liquid waste by at least 80% of households and all public places
  • Visual cleanliness: A village will be classified as visually clean if 80% of households and all public places are observed to have minimal litter and minimal stagnant water and there is no accumulation of plastic waste in the form of a dump in the village.


Retrofitting, defined as “adapting the existing toilet without direct contact of sanitation workers or users with excreta, to the standards of safe technology options and users’ convenience”. 

1st Phase: 923 JEN/JTA have been trained in Toilet technology at state level.

2nd Phase: PRI members, District, block level officers and VDO, have been trained in toilets technology.

3rd Phase: 55,853 Masons and Swachhgrahi have been trained at GP level.

This exercise resulted in 20,381 toilets retrofitted and construction of 8,907 IEC toilets been for educating rural people about right and appropriate toilet technology.
