In the Village where two Girls were Gang-Raped and Hanged last year, Toilets may have helped them and protected their Safety, Dignity & Health. Help us build Toilets for them !
"There are no crops now, nowhere to hide, and men can see us from all sides," explains Raj Beti, as a teenage daughter stirs a potato curry over a wood fire, while her youngest, Soumya, two, plays hide and seek in a tattered Teletubbies dress. "We don't know who's watching, who's waiting for us."
In Bihar, where 75.8% homes have no sanitation facilities, an 11-year-old girl in Mai village, Jehanabad district, was raped on 5 May last year when she was going out in the fields late at night. Earlier, on 28 April, another girl was raped also while going to defecate in the open in another village, 35km from Patna. Another girl was raped on 24 April in a farm in Chaunniya village, Bihar. These are stories that don’t make headlines. But in Badaun, Uttar Pradesh, two cousins raped late in May while going out together to the fields, their bodies strung up the next morning from a tree in a crime so horrific and depraved causes nation-wide outrage and a renewed debate on rape, caste, patriarchy, and inefficient policing.
SHUDDHI is working together with Partners and Local Communities in India to provide Free Public Toilets and safeguarding the dignity and safety of women in Cities such as New Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Ahmadabad, also the plan is to provide more than 100 Toilets in Villages all over India with your help and support by the end of 2015. We also run Public Awareness Campaigns across villages to reduce unhygienic and unsanitary defecating practices. Open defecation doesn't just lead to disease, but is also very humiliating for women and young girls as there is no privacy (they prefer to go either early morning or after evening).
The toilet will be installed directly on the beneficiary's land. The village-level committees recommend families, which are then selected based on their socio-economic conditions after physical verification by the SHUDDHI's core team. The sponsored Toilet makes a Donor eligible to have a private meeting with beneficiary family, and sometimes felicitated in a community Thank You Event organised by us. The Toilet that we provide to the beneficiary family is of best quality material, is safe and is portable for daily usage. Neighbours can also share the toilet with the family.
LASTING CHANGE ON A GLOBAL SCALE, AND IT ALL STARTS WITH PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU.
