Under WaterAid supported Community based WASH Initiatives for Urban Poor in slum areas like Nayaktoli, Nagratoli, Ravidas Muhalla, Domtoli and Quoreshi Muhalla in Ranchi; Community Sanitary Blocks (CSBs) are a model hygienic set up to provide toilet amenities for the people of weaker section. There are 3 CSBs being used by around 300 families compelled for open defecation earlier. People are organized here as Slum Development Committees in each area and took responsibility to maintain and monitor CSBs. They deposit monthly service charge from each household to run CSBs and collect user charge from others who use WASH facilities provided here. Though some times this is not easy to collect money but timely intervention like awareness drive or door to door visit by NBJK project staff makes a way to address the problem. These Community Sanitary Blocks provide 24×7 services to all, safety for women & girl children and people could develop a sense of belongingness to this public assets/system they were deprived of before.
