Gramalaya has been working in the MHM sector for more than three decades with national-level presence supported by Government, donors and corporate groups under CSR initiatives. They have successfully demonstrated models in the field of water, sanitation, and hygiene with various demographic conditions covering rural, urban, coastal and tribal areas. The Government of India has approved Gramalaya as one of the National Key Resource Centres (KRC) for providing training and capacity building support to Government Officials and NGOs working in the sector.
Gramalaya has promoted more than 6,00,000+ individual household toilets in India by closely working with State Governments like Puducherry and SBM of different Districts. By working with SBM program and CSR initiatives, Gramalaya is instrumental in declaring several villages and slums in urban areas as open defecation free zones. During the last six years, Gramalaya has been promoting MHM among adolescent girls studying in schools by promoting reusable cloth pads, girls’ friendly toilet complexes with hand washing station and conducting MHM education sessions in the schools. The MHM concept developed by Gramalaya is being recommended for case study and replication by other institutions across the country.
So far, Gramalaya has imparted MHM education among 8,00,000+ women and girls studying in schools in the rural and urban areas. With the rich experience in the space of WASH, MHM and Nutrition, Gramalaya would like to convene a National-level summit on MHM for knowledge sharing and exchange of experiences and expertise in the MHM sector from various Government Departments, NGOs, donors and Corporate Groups interested in promoting MHM. Gramalaya has delivered a noteworthy attempt in declaring 5 villages including two town panchayat wards as 100% cloth pads using women and adolescent girls and ODF zones. More than 5,71,000+ reusable cloth pads are distributed by Gramalaya through social marketing in India and prevent water, land and environment pollution by stopping single use sanitary pads made with hazardous chemicals among the intervention communities.
We request you to join us in this success story and support us by attending the summit in order to gain knowledge by our powerful speakers and share your valuable experiences.
