The summit is aligned to ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ (Clean India Initiative) of our visionary Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. IndiaCSR is an active participant of this noble mission to support and create national level forum to discuss various issues related to the toilet and sanitation, health, education, women empowerment and behavioral change for wider social good. We believe that the summit would highlight the problems allied with lack of sanitation facilities and toilets and would also make resolutions to achieve Nation Sanitation Goals by 2019 as a tribute to the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, by eliminating the unhealthy practice of open defecation. Indian Government has envisioned a great mission to develop separate toilets for boys and girls in every school in the country, by 15th of August 2015. Recognize of importance of sanitation and toilets in improving human health and priorities it in the development strategies. Maximize collective efforts and resources to improve access to basic sanitation through public private partnerships, business, governments and NGOs. Ensure equitable allocation of resources to reach the poorest of the poor and the most vulnerable segment of population. Facilitate active discussions on evolving sanitation practices to ensure mission oriented strategies and adoption of policies. Adopt sector targeting approaches based on scientific research on sanitation and toilet design. To actualize the achievements of Millennium Development Goal (MDG) target to reduce by half the proportion of the 2.6 billion people without access to basic sanitation by 2015.
