Ms. S. Rajalakshmi, was elected Panchayat President in Alamaruthupatti which is our service area of Swachh Bharat Mission. The total population is 5411 and during 2014-15 23% were without toilet facility. We started working in the area from April 2014 and as president, she felt the need to change the traditional behavior and attitude of the people. We have conducted many motivational programmes, but she has motivated the community individually and explained the importance of toilet facility. We have accepted her request and financially supported her by appointing monitors for motivating people to use the toilets which yielded the desired results.
