The project consists of procuring water and improving hygiene and health conditions in Three (3) rural schools of Viluppuram, Tamilnadu, guaranteeing them access to sufficient quantities of water suitable for human consumption, hand washing stations, separate sanitary facilities for boys and girls and promotion of hygiene, we are providing modern facilities for education like Computers, projectors, UPS, Smart classes, Library facilities, safe Drinking Water, Toilets for Girls, Incinerators, RO plant 500 Lt capacity and Wash in Schools

The central idea is not only the sanitary adequacy but thanks to it the education in hygiene and activities and workshops to achieve a change of mentality in the students that at the same time promotes the same change in the behavior of their family groups, including their siblings and the cohabiting adults in each neighborhood that surrounds the schools. All the schools are inserted in poor communities, with very low resources and with little or no literacy.

In Primary Level from 6 to 12 years old and in Secondary Level , from 12 to 18 years old. 60% of them are women and 40% are men; the installation of sink stations and showers will exert a remarkable and revolutionary change in the hygiene habits of the local children that will surely be projected towards their family groups. The project will also allow an improvement in the primary health care provided in those institutions, in particular maternal and child should be borne in mind

The GG will provide the materials, to be purchased through tenders in local suppliers as well as the payment of the labor that will be hired in the same locality and transport and freight of materials to the rural area through the Rotarians involved in the Project.

hence the need to strengthen the education system in the rural area in order to be a multiplier effect due to the influence and participation developed by teachers not only through teaching with children but also to the elderly and the entire rural community.
