Hi,


My name is Asha and I am raising funds for FSL-India which is working towards providing one toilet/bathroom per family, for the tribal population of Balenahalli, Hunsur Taluk, in Mysore district of Karnataka state.


The target population of FSL-India’s sanitation project is the tribal community of Balenahalli. These tribals live predominantly at the edge of the reserved forest in the Western Ghats. Their livelihood is primarily based on forest produce, supplemented by agriculture. 63 tribal families along with their school-going children will be the primary stakeholders and immensely benefit from the complete sanitation of their village.


Almost 85% of the tribal families do not have proper toilets and in some cases, the families have no choice but to urinate and defecate in the open. This is not only unhygienic but is also inconvenient during monsoon. In rural areas like Hunsur, the land is freely available for tribal families, but they lack the financial resources to construct toilets. Through a careful selection process, FSL-India ensures that the poor and needy families are beneficiaries of the construction of toilets.


With a vision to provide one toilet/bathroom per family, FSL India has constructed 25 toilet/bathrooms for the tribals in this village, through volunteering and donations. As the population is 63 families, the remaining 38 families are still deprived of toilet/bathroom facilities.


The construction cost per toilet/bathroom is Rs 40000/-. We appeal to donors and well-wishers to join hands with us to complete the task of providing sanitation facilities to the remaining 38 families. The total cost for construction of 38 toilets is Rs 1500000/- (Rs Fifteen Lakhs). Kindly support our cause by donating and sharing our fundraiser.
