Low awareness level is one of the main reasons for developing these problems. The target group of this program will be poor and uneducated people. The sense of sanitation and hygiene is very low among them. They don’t have proper knowledge regarding different problems arising in society for these issues. Different NGOs and governments are playing a vital role in conducting and developing such programs for the benefit of society and the country. If a locality is kept clean then people will get motivated to follow good hygiene habits and maintaining a proper sanitation system. Local parties and local government also contributes a lot in this process. Hygiene and sanitation program also includes building and maintaining clean road and disposal of garbage in proper places. This program teaches people to improve and implement safe hygiene processes and water quality. Teaching proper handwashing habits prevents people from getting affected by critical diseases.
