We do deserve to be distracted from the horrors of this world for a time, but not all together separated from it. I cannot express to you how important COMPASSION is. The simple saying of 'put yourself into their shoes' says it all.

END OPEN DEFECATION
Living for nearly three months in a village where open defecation was the norm opened my mind to the importance of sanitation awareness. It is not always up to us to go into these communities like western superheros and build toilets. What's more important is the idea of empowerment and the application of good health and hygiene awareness. You can build as many toilets as you like but it doesn't mean they will be used.
