“The time to clean our city of any dirt begins with individual action for collective clean communities.”

Poor sanitation and high population mass act as a double whammy on children who grow up stunted”. It is not a coincidence that states with the poorest levels of sanitation and highest levels of population density such as Jharkhand, Bihar, and Madhya Pradesh also have the highest levels of child malnutrition in the country. About 48 per cent of children in India are suffering from some degree of malnutrition. According to the UNICEF, water-borne diseases such as diarrhoea and respiratory infections are the number one cause for child deaths in India. UTTHAN works continuously to improve the health and hygiene condition in India.
