19th Feb – Inspirational Day

19 Feb

Another amazing day today in a similar pattern to yesterday. We had over 6 hours off-roading in a mini-bus! In the morning we visited Jonhar in Datia district which is a pre-intervention farming community. People were more assured; explained their needs and had a clear understanding of the link between poor water & sanitation and ill health. We had group photos and took photos with the children bonding with the community. In the afternoon we visited a post-intervention project Kamhar. The project was complete in 2010. It was a very organised and empowered village. There were individual household latrines, garbage collection, a well protection scheme, water sample testing, rainwater collection dam, rainwater collection from roofs and community health awareness. A remarkable achievement.
