Digging a pit 30 years ago sparks his mission to end open defecation in Nepal
The story filed by WSSCC Field communications consultant in Nepal, Renu Kshetry, tells a compelling story of Chandra KC, the former Joint Secretary at the Ministry of Water Supply (MoWS), and a member of WSSCC, whose mission to end open defactaion in Nepal was sparked off by digging just one pit.
“There was not even a single toilet, not even in government offices,” recalled Mr KC. “Fields and nearby bushes were used as toilets.”
The story is worth a good read as it shows you what just one man with a passion can do to achieve what may appear a difficult task.
