One of the strategies that has been adopted by FERAL in its approach to WASH is to target school children. This has a number of advantages over household sanitation interventions. For one, it targets the younger generation who are more likely to alter their behaviour with respect to open defecation. Further, by restoring and building infrastructure in schools, we can ensure the use of facilities created. This project, implemented in partnership with the Technology and Action for Rural Advancement (TARA), involved a series of activities and interventions in six schools located near the FORD Motors factory close to Chennai. The activities included the restoration and construction of drinking water facilities and toilets and a number of awareness generation programmes. A total of 14 toilets were constructed in the selected schools and another two were refurbished.
