As various NGO’s and INGO’s are playing key roll to make life better in rural area by providing assistant to better sanitization and safe drinking water.

In a recent move, A district in state no 3 of Nepal, Dhading has declared as open defecation free district where as 40 % or above household has not even functioning toilets.

Dhading declared itself an open defecation-free (ODF) district on the occasion of the World Health Day on Sunday. MP Khem Lohani declared Dhading as the 64th ODF district in a function.

Every house in Dhading had to construct a toilet to become an ODF district, said Jagannath Nepal, chief of District Coordination Committee.
