Every house in Ghachowk village in Nepal has a toilet, and the community takes responsibility for keeping the village clean. Local schoolchildren were the first to learn these lessons and did a splendid job of passing them on to adults.
However, through a project initiated seven years ago by Unicef in partnership with the government of Nepal and a handful of development organisations, the village of Ghachowk in Kaski district is setting an example that will hopefully inspire the rest of the country.
‘Ghachowk is a 100% sanitation zone. Every home in our village has a latrine,’ proclaim billboards along the path leading up to the village.
