‘Improving community health through Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation’ is one of the flagship initiative under HMP. It aims to improve community health through village-level drinking water and environmental sanitation projects with an added focus on hygiene and is being implemented through village based water and sanitation committees, which plan, design, implement and manage their own schemes. Since October 2002 to January 2016 three phases have been successfully completed, covering 133 villages, benefiting 7,000 households comprising of 46,794 beneficiaries. A total of 218 drinking water schemes, 573 Rain Water Harvesting Structures (RWHSs) and 10,000 Sanitation units are constructed. Himmotthan under Tata Water Mission (TWM), is taking forward the WaSH initiative focusing largely on water security, promotion of point of use, making village Open Defecation Free (ODF), School WaSH, Behavioural Change Communication (BCC) and working closely on Swachh Bharat Mission with the State, Central Government and Gram Panchayats to facilitate the access and use of sanitation facility at remote villages of Himalayas. WaSH initiatives by 2019 will benefit additional 500 villages covering more than 52,000 beneficiaries.
