Visit to Amrod. I introduced our group at the reception. Village has achieved over 80% sanitation in last 10 months by community involvement and some inspirational villagers. Inspirational 5 year plan for water security, secondary schooling and road improvements.unique opportunity to help a family build their own latrine from digging to bricklaying. Got my hands dirty at last and another incredible experience. Another sanitation project pm in Padli. Awareness;stench;purdah;dignity;issues. Now 98% sanitary coverage buit in last 3 months. Community contribition of 3% project cost of latrines, water scheme being planned. Children and youth groups actively involved- children have changed the mindset in this community.
