Building A Hygiene India

India is the second-most populous country, with more than 1 billion citizens, and as per records, a staggering 522 million, practice open defecation. The World Bank estimates that 21 per cent of communicable diseases in India are linked to unsafe water and the lack of hygiene practices, with more than 500 children under the age of 5 are dying each day from diarrhoea.

One of the main reasons is the lack of Sanitation facilities which causes serious health hazards in the local communities especially affecting the safety of women and adolescent children. Tricon is working on building sanitation facilities in remote villages in India to achieve sustainable sanitation practices in the local communities.

Our Initiative

In February 2020, we decided to build sanitation facilities in a few villages in Bihar. This initiative was carried out in 3 projects across Bihar. We studied the populations of each village and created a plan to construct toilets in those regions. All the 3 projects were successfully completed in May 2021. We are happy to announce we have constructed 54 toilets across various villages in Bihar.

Our values and goals are the driving force behind our vision for a better environment, society, and economy. We are proud of our vision and hope to make India a hygienic and healthy place.
