Developed by RB India in partnership with Butterfly Fields and XSEED this curriculum has key elements like Hygiene in school, home, neighbourhood, personal hygiene and hygiene during illness For many of us reading this, the thought of not being able to use a toilet when the need arises is not something that we can fathom. At a time when many national and international media report on the atrocities committed against women in India, the stories of women’s leadership in development remains an oft-ignored story.



ISC Engagement with Government

The sanitation movement in India is unique as the clarion call for urgent action on sanitation

Swachh Bharat is not a government programme rather it’s a people’s movement. Government is an important stakeholder in this mission and brings the following competencies to the sanitation landscape:

  • Policy formulation and creation of enabling frameworks 
  • Providing monetary and budgetary support
  • Program delivery and implementation
  • Infrastructure creation
  • Ensuring welfare of the marginalized communities 

Benefits for the Government

The coalition through its platform and networks could offer the following to the government stakeholders: 

  • Create partnerships and collaborations to support, scale up and improve efficiency of sanitation programmes with a multi-stakeholder approach 
  • Access to new technologies and innovations that could offer local solutions for sanitation 
  • Opportunity for inter-ministerial/departmental convergence on the Swachh Bharat Mission 
  • Creating avenues for leveraging private sector competencies like creating business models, marketing, innovation, etc. 
  • Access to expertise to address the entire value of sanitation i.e. build, use, maintain and treat
