T.W.O's Sanitation Programme in Tamil Nadu, India
We have established a partnership with Centre of Tribal & Rural Development (CTRD) Trust to provide toilets to selected villagers in rural and tribal communities in the state of Tamil Nadu.
75 families from 2 villages (Indira Nagar and Kakuchi) in The Nilgiris have needs for sanitation facilities. The communities are willing to contribute 20 % for part of the materials and labour costs. This is a great initiative as it promotes a sense of ownership and responsibility.
In 2016, the target is SGD40,000 for 75 toilets (25 toilets every 4 months). Excess funds will be channeled to the next target.
- Together We're One (T.W.O) is a self-initiated group which supports rural community development in India through the management of sustainable projects that address the basic needs of safe water, sanitation and education.
- 100 % of all funds will go to the programme to cover construction costs, water and educational facilities etc. Administrative and operational costs are covered by ourselves, the volunteers.
