11 year old Sumit is in the 6th standard. He has an elder sister. His mother is a housewife and his father works in a private company in Delhi. Before World Vision India came to the village where Sumit lives the village had no toilets. People would defecate in the open.Drinking water was hard to access. The children in the village had no interest in education and school drop-out rate was high.
So much has changed since World Vision India started working in his village. Now every house in the village has a toilet. After much hard work, safe and clean drinking water is made available to the children and the communities. Parents were informed and sensitised through various trainings and awareness programmes on healthy practices and the importance of education.
