When LEADer Sudharani and her teammates visited a place called Hullur in Vijaypura district they spoke to people and asked them for documents. Initially people were not ready but LEADers did not stop. They arranged a rally with children to spread awareness about cleanliness, they called a grampanchayat meeting to tell the importance of toilet construction. LEADers explained them the procedure to get funds from government as it can be a problem for villagers to travel to city LEADers collected necessary documents and submitted them to BDO. The families who have submitted documents receives funds for the toilet construction and the work begins.
