(ODF) Open Defacation Freeadmin
On the road to prepare the villages in Megahalay for ITM2015, TIP and NESFAS focused on the Open Defecation Free (ODF) campaign in collaboration with the District Water and Sanitation (DWSM) East Khasi Hills district, Meghalaya, and the 41 host communities so as to improve the general quality of life in the villages by promoting cleanliness, hygiene and eliminating open defecation, a shared dream of NESFAS and the Government of Meghalaya. The campaign was conducted at the state level with the initiation at the Shillong Gurudwara on the 12th of May 2015. This was taken up at district levels following that to establish the processes and practices. The sessions were facilitated together with Mark West Kharkongor, Dictrict Coordinator, Water and Sanitation Mission. This led to the declaration of a number of villages associated with NESFAS as Open Defecation Free and all ready to receive guests to stay in comfort and privacy.
