Too many people, too much pollution and too little water – that's Delhi’s water supply situation in a nutshell.

Green pastures and meadows, tall trees, lakes, wells and the river…those are my memories of Delhi. It wasn’t too long ago that one woke up early to the sounds of lawns being watered, children running off to school and people walking in the parks. A flurry of activity but quite different from what it is today.

WASH is essential for the all-round well-being of all children, especially girls.

 

Statistics that will shock you!

Participants of the workshop recommended that:

The maintenance of WASH facilities in schools be checked regularly to ensure that they work properly.

Meghalaya in general gets 12000+ mm of water through rainfall, nevertheless, scarcity of water is a common issue here. I've recently read many articles on water-less urinals which help in conserving the natural resource & keeps the environment clean at the same time too. Bio-blocks are another alternative to this.

I would like to get contatcs of organizations who manufacture "Odour Trap" for the urinals and the ones who manufacturer Bio-blocks. Ay information on the resource support available for this will also be useful.
