Nepal: Toilet use campaign

Butwal: A campaign for children, youth and elderly has been started to change the habit of people who defecate in the open despite having concrete toilet in their homes. The campaigners visit all houses every day, monitor toilet and teach children and elderly people how to use toilet [and to wash hands with soap and water or ash and water after toilet use]. They have made a rule to fine open defecation.

[…] “It took a lot of time and hard work to make the elderly people use toilet who had been defecating in the open from their childhood,” said Krishnabati Verma, president of the campaign.
