SAFA SIMDEGA : In today’s world sanitation and hygiene is an alarming issue. The behaviour of safe sanitation and hygiene improves public health leading to reduction in hard earned money spent on water and open defecation born diseases thus alleviating poverty. It also reduces MMR and IMR as access to safe toilets; safe drinking water saves women and infant children from womb infections and Diarrhoeal diseases and malnourishment respectively. Swachh Bharat Mission (Gramin), a flagship programme of government of India to transform the country from the state of open defecation to open defecation free, has created Jan Aandolan in Simdega district under the leadership of DC, Simdega towards achieving Swachh Simdega Swasth Simdega by the financial year 2017-18. Among 10 blocks Kersai is the first tribal dominated block which has achieved ODF status so far.Rest of the blocks are fighting in mission mode to achieve ODF status. Hopefully, till December, 2017 the district will achieve what it has branded its mission “Safa Simdega”. Safa comes from Sadri language which means cleanliness.
