The outcome of the Study helped in identifying “cluster of villages” wherein women organizations are functioning, in order to plan for a Program pertaining to capacity building of women about the best practices to be adopted under “WASH” (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene). These cluster of villages would be the platform for launching the capacity building program being proposed by CARE India.
