Three VDCs in Ilam open defecation free
Three Village Development Committees (VDCs) in the district were declared as open-defecation-free by the end of the fiscal year 2012/2013. The VDCs which have been declared as 'open-defecation-free' are Sankhejung, Namsaling and Maimajhuwa.
Ilam has released Rs. 4.6 million to the poor families in the three VDCs.
The district had targeted to declare 12 districts open defecation free this year. Toilets meeting the required standards have been constructed at 20,335 houses while 23,513 homes have makeshift toilets in the 48 VDCs of the district.
However, 7,424 still have to construct toilets for the district to be open-defecation free. RSS
