With support from Hyundai Glovis Asha Chennai has launched Project Sugadharam to build and repair toilets at the schools we support in Thiruvallur District.
Asha Chennai has been working with government schools in the Thiruvallur district under Project Sangamam-Poondi and Project Sangamam Kanini. While our focus has been on education, we recognise the important of health and hygiene. Many of these school lack good toilet facilities at these schools. This impacts the children in several ways: Dropouts, poor hygiene and health, bad environment at the school etc.
Hyundai Glovis came forward to construct / repair toilets at the schools in Thiruvallur Dist supported by Asha Chennai. We launched this project under the name “Sugadharam”. On Nov 24th I signed the MOU with Mr. Joo Min the MD of Hyundai Glovis at their office.
We have put together photos showing the state of the toilets and the work required at all the areas where we plan to do this work. People from Glovis and the Korean contractor also visited some of these places. Their photos are also here. Further the MOU signing is also there in this album. Please find the photos here: https://goo.gl/photos/HJg8p4cPcWurZvYq8.
We will be starting the activity shortly by constructing a new toilet at Thandalam.
