TThe Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) program initiated by GPSVS with comprehensive approaches aimed at improving public health and well-being by addressing key aspects of water, sanitation, and hygiene in underserved communities. This program encompasses various components, each playing a crucial role in enhancing the overall quality of life for the target population. it promotes the use of two effective water treatment methods – SODIS and Matka Filter. SODIS involves using solar energy to disinfect water by exposing it to sunlight, making it safe for consumption. GPSVS is encouraging the construction of sanitary toilets within communities, reducing the practice of open defecation. Addressing the specific needs of women and girls, the program promotes menstrual hygiene management. This involves providing access to sanitary hygiene products and educating females on proper hygiene practices during menstruation. By doing so, GPSVS ensures that women and girls can manage their menstrual health with dignity and without disruption to their daily lives.
