The pronto toilet initiative was launched with the aim of facilitating our Prime
Ministers mission ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’. Pronto Toilet aims to improve hygiene
among the masses and curtail ailments caused on account of dearth of proper sanitation
facilities in the country. Lack of toilets is more than just a sanitation problem.
Children fall ill due to the germs spread from open defecation and cannot attend
school. This hinders their education and learning process. Many girls drop out of
school due to absence of sanitation facilities. Construction of toilets and sanitation
systems in local communities and schools is imperative.
Pronto Toilet aims to construct individual sanitary latrines at schools and communities
to accomplish a vision of 'Clean India'.
Apart from toilet construction generation of awareness among citizens about sanitation
and its linkages with public health is also promoted.
