Satya Bharti Abhiyan

Bharti Foundation launched the ‘Satya Bharti Abhiyan’ initiative in 2014 to improve sanitation conditions by providing toilets to households and institutions and foster behavioral change among community members. Inspired by the Hon’ble Prime Minister’s call to the corporate sector in his Independence Day (2014) speech to strengthen the Government’s initiative in this aspect, the Foundation has adopted Ludhiana and Amritsar districts (rural) as its focus area for the improvement of sanitation facilities. It worked with a mandate to:

i) Provide a toilet in every household of rural Ludhiana that doesn’t have one.

ii) Provide a girls’ toilet in every Government school not having a separate girls’ toilet

iii) Bring about behavioural change towards improving sanitation conditions

iv) Implement the Abhiyan independently, i.e. without taking any funds/resources from the Government or the beneficiary

So far, Satya Bharti Abhiyan has provided toilets to over 18,500 households as well as institutions in Ludhiana and rural Amritsar, directly benefitting over 1,86,000 people.

PROGRAM APPROACH

Bharti Foundation partners with various organizations, including Sulabh International, Sintex and Affordable Housing Technical Assistance Centre (AFHTAC) for the construction of toilets:..

  • Beneficiary Identification:

    Beneficiary identification is done by involving Gram Panchayat representatives for inviting applications from households. House visits are conducted by implementing partner representatives and corrections are made in the existing lists accordingly. Posters containing names of identified beneficiaries are displayed in the community for acceptability and ownership of selections. Representatives from Bharti Foundation then perform random verification of the beneficiaries to ensure adherence to the selection.

  • Construction of IHHLs in respective houses:

    Once beneficiary selection is done and approved, the Foundation gets into constructing the IHHLs in the selected households. Currently, three agencies are being partnered for construction as mentioned above.

  • Beneficiary education on usage and maintenance:

    Representatives from Bharti Foundation then educate the beneficiaries on the usage and proper maintenance of the IHHLs. They also sensitize them on the importance of using IHHLs and maintaining hygiene.

  • Documentation:

    The Foundation ensures robust documentation in order to maintain accountability and transparency to the process. The presence of following documents is ensured at the time of handover:

    • Taking-over certificate for the beneficiary
    • Photographs of the beneficiary with respective toilet
    • Copy of a Government issued identification proof
    • Certificate by the Sarpanch

  • Monitoring usage of toilets:

    A third party survey has been planned by the Foundation at the end of one year of construction of toilets, in order to monitor the usage of toilets.
