Sanitation is has always been an agenda since very beginning after Independence In 1986 that the government launched the Central Rural Sanitation Program (CRSP), the first nationwide sanitation program. Several other large sanitation programs have been launched since then such as the Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan (NBA) in rural India, In 2001 the CRSP was overhauled with the introduction of the Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC). In 2007 TSC was renamed Nirmal Bharat Abhiyan (NBA). NBA envisages facilitating individual household toilets to the Below Poverty Line and Identified Above Poverty Line households and providing school and community level sanitation. Now in 2014 the program is again renamed and revised with benefits as Swach Bharat Bhayian with ambition to make India ODF by 2019, but still the major focus on ground is on construction of toilets and it’s counting then making ODF communities. Usage of toilets still remain an issue. This paper narrates the experience of development organization on how to collaborate towards making ODF communities beyond construction.
