International Women’s Day 2015

Happy International Women’s Day!

In October last year, I was blessed to meet Chetna & Sangeeta in Rahki Mandi slum. Sangeeta Srivastava and Chetna Tiwari are community facilitators working for WaterAid’s partner organisation, Shramik Bharti, in Kanpur, India.

“We treat people like they are our family, and slowly become a part of their own families. We show them love. Maybe that’s why they listen to us now.”

They have been nicknamed the ‘Toilet Ladies’. These amazing women have worked hard to build relationships with families in this slum. Their mission is to encourage people to build toilets, creating a safer and healthier environment.
