Environment related issues in communities in certain areas


  • Spread of disease due to unclean surroundings
  • Lack of proper facilities resulting in open defecation and water borne diseases
  • Lack of simple personal hygiene resulting in disease
  • Lack of Information on lifecycle of mosquitoes, insects, worms and germs festering on dirt and food waste in the surroundings, leading to disease

What does ECA do

Environment related hygiene issues are highlighted in communities and discussed. This is especially important in under privileged and economically weaker areas as these households depend on environment resources and surrounding land for their daily lives.
In urban slums this problem escalates due to lack of facilities. ECA liaises with the Municipal Corporations and other NGOs to provide the basic facilities and maintain clean surroundings.
