How Swachh Bharat Mission helped millions live with dignity

New Delhi, Sep 15 (TIWN) Launched five years ago, the Swachh Bharat Mission announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on the verge making India a completely open defecation free (ODF), enabling people to embrace change and live their lives with dignity.

Over 10 crore toilets have been built in the country since the launch of the programme on October 2, 2014. A huge section of the population does not have to wait for designated time of the day to relieve themselves any more. They are free to relieve themselves anytime -- once a luxury.  The progress that India made by building toilets and the impact that it has had on the lives of millions in the country and others in the wider world has not gone unnoticed.  Recognition has flowed in from global institutions like the Unicef, World Health Organization (WHO) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  When Modi visits the US later in September, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will honour the success of Swachh Bharat Mission that has transformed lives of million across the country.
