GAYAPATI: Determined to Live A More Sanitary and Healthy Life
Gayapati had long wanted a toilet constructed in her home. Lack of money and little support from her family, who did not see it as priority, prevented this from happening. During one of her SHG meeting, she learned it would be possible to borrow money to finally execute this project. Although it took some time for her family to accept the idea, construction was eventually underway. Little by little, she repaid her loan and today, has a fully functioning ‘pucca’ toilet, which is appreciated by her entire family. Gayapati and her family also enjoy the benefits of having a kitchen garden, which she learned to grow through her SHG.
