Drinking Water and Sanitation

Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC)

Communication and Capacity Development Unit (CCDU), Water and Sanitation Support Organization, State Water and Sanitation Mission, Rajasthan under Public Health Engineering Department, Govt. of Rajasthan.

National Rural Drinking Water and Saniation Programme (NRDWP) has its focus on drinking water security at household level. In ensuring adequate safe drinking water and sanitation to all households in rural areas on a longā€term basis, Gram Panchayats and their Standing committee, viz. Village Water & Sanitation Committees (VWSCs) and Gram Sabhas have to play a critical role. NRDWP also aims at fully empowered, aware and skilled Gram Panchayats capable of planning, implementation, operation, maintenance and management of water supply at village levels. In order to ensure that GPs/ VWSCs develop understanding of the rural drinking water supply and sanitation programmes, and are empowered to shoulder their responsibilities, they need to be provided with continuous support in terms of creating awareness, training and handholding on various aspects of drinking water supply.
The present work envisages:

  • To execute the Interpersonal communication activities in the targeted villages
  • To conduct the Participatory rapid appraisals exercise in the targeted village for identification of the local issues.
  • To form VWSC in the GP
  • To build the Capacity of VWSC Members
  • To prepare water security plan of the village
