Marking Women’s day on March 8, Parryware, an Indian manufacturer of bathroom products is constructing 1000 Indian style Pink toilets to Swachh Bharat Mission to make Delhi Open Defecation Free. The initiative is a part of the company’s corporate social responsibility plan (CSR) and is inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Mission. 1000 Indian style toilets in shades of Pink will be installed at the market areas, urban slums and areas around railway station in the capital to make “Open Defecation Free” with the Ministry of Urban Development, as the initial step to achieve well-maintained sanitation and hygiene facilities for women.
Congratulating Parryware for the initiative, Praveen Prakash, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Urban Development& Mission Director, Swachh Bharat Mission said, “While women safety has always been on top of our agenda while devising sanitation plans, this contribution from Parryware will set an example for other corporates to join the mission. I hope this is just a start and with everyone’s support, we can achieve a nationwide open defecation free status soon.”
