Adopting the seed planted by Prime Minister of India, we have led the way towards maintenance of a clean environment by constructing and renovating sanitation facilities in various project areas. By installing cloud based remote monitoring and real-time behavior trackers in toilets, SEED has pioneered the establishment of smart, high-tech toilet facilities.
Taking the movement for cleanliness further, SEED has become a proud participant of the “Swachh Varanasi” project, which follows in the footsteps of the nation-wide initiative “Banega Swachh India”. The project promotes the setting-up of high- tech toilets at Ganga Ghats, and includes a portable superstructure which controls the flow of water and can be shifted to another site, in the event of a rise in water level. These toilets are equipped with innovative, cutting-edge technology such as fecal sludge treatment and waterless urinal technology. Further, they are designed to be easily accessible to the differently-abled and are women-friendly. We plan to replicate the initiative across India to stop open defecation and make India clean and healthy.
We have also initiated cleanliness campaigns in the villages, by focusing on spreading awareness about better sanitation and hygiene practices and disseminating information about the importance of cleanliness, through IEC materials. The villagers are also educated about behavior change, to make the campaign truly effective and successful.
