WSF Sanitation Initiative

In the morning, most of us get up and head to the bathroom and sit on our toilets. While we are sitting, people in rural areas such as Baijuhdih, have no access to toilets. As a result, they have to resort to open deification. Growing up in the village our founder and CEO, Shanti Jha, found this to be unacceptable. He decided to take this matter into his own hands by starting the Weekend School Foundation Sanitation Initiative.

Dr. Jha is explaining to a local village resident how the bathroom will work when it is finished. It is important that the locals understand what is being built so they can use it properly

Dr. Jha finds the solution to the problem of where the water will flow by saying that they will build a septic tank for clean water to flow. This will give access to water for the locals to clean with and is a crucial part for the WSF Sanitation Initiative

Some locals are critical to how Dr. Jha and his team will build the tank. Difficulties will arise in every aspect, but Dr. Jha and his team found a way to have the locals agree and started to construct toilets.

As of today, Dr. Jha's Weekend School Foundation Sanitation Initiative has built # toilets for locals to access and taken a step towards ending unsanitary environments, as well as open defication
