Block level Consultation on Improving Rural Sanitation and Social Accountability in Ganjam




Purusotompur, (Ganjam),15/03/18:Block level consultation on Rural Sanitation and Social Accountability was held in Conference Hall in Purusotampur on 15th March 2018. Block Development Officer Sri Lokanath Dalabehera inaugurated the consultation. Among of block level officials Mr. Gobardhan Das, Additional Block Education Officer Ms. Sabita Chyau Pattanayak, Child Development Project Officer, A. Rama Rao, Junior Engineer Rural Water Supply and Sanitation, Sarapanchas of Kama Nalinakhya Pur, Ch. Nuagaon, Jhadabai and Tankachhai also attended in this consultation.


Youth for Social Development (YSD) a NGO based in Berhampur has organised this consultation with support from block administration and National Foundation of India (NFI). Mr. Ratneswar Sahu presented Rural Sanitation situation in Ganjam and Purusotampur block in particular. As per the Swachha Bharat Mission-Gramin information Purusotampur block has achieved nearly 42% of coverage of IHHL and it has a long way to go to achieve 100 percent by 2019. There is a need for joint action from government, CSOs, NGOs and citizen to construct 100 percent IHHL and declare open defecation free (ODF). Similarly the schools, health centres, anganwadi centres and other government offices required toilets, water supply and hand washing facilities but the reality is different and we need to work to make the block ODF, clean and hygiene. 


YSD is going to create awareness among citizens and also make them able to hold the public officials and service providers accountable through social accountability in 4 Gram Panchayats on pilot basis to improve service delivery and make Purusotampur ODF in Ganjam. 


Among of the YSD team Mr. Chandan Kumar Sahu and Mr. Subhasis Sethy facilitated this consultation. Youth for Social Development, Berhampur is a research based grass root organisation working on issues of governance, citizen’s participation, child rights and youth empowerment and climate justice since 2006.
