Inspiring Stories Of the Sanitation Revolution From Across India Any mention of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is incomplete without talking numbers to highlight landmarks or achievements so far. Over 5 crore (5.17 crore) toilets built, 2.5 lakh villages are open defecation free (ODF), sanitation coverage of the country today is up to 70 percent from just 38 percent in 2014. But apart from the number crunching, the success of the Abhiyan is in the stories, some inspiring, some unfathomable for their efforts, all for a basic need they have been deprived of for decades – a toilet. Many of these stories involve women warriors who have come forward to do their bit towards building a Swachh India. From a 12-year-old to a 106-year-old, women from across India are leading the swachhta fight in their own unique ways. Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (SBA) or Clean India Mission was a nation-wide campaign from 2014 to 2019 to clean up the streets, roads and infrastructure of cities, towns, and rural areas. Its objectives included eliminating open defecation through the construction of household-owned and community-owned toilets and establishing an accountable mechanism of monitoring toilet use.Women At The Forefront Of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan:
