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.
