Sanitation and community culture are interlinked. To attain positive sustainable sanitation practices by all persons we need to understand community culture in the context of defecation, as well as clean environment and personal hygiene practices. Values, attitude, assumptions, behavior, and belief’s people share about themselves and others and about the natural world they live, make up community culture1. According to Census 2011, 71.59% of the rural population in Karnataka are dependent on open spaces for defecation. Over the years the Government of India along with the many international organizations have made efforts to bring about changes in rural communities by improving sanitation services through various projects , but the achievements are not up to the mark. This is because human factors related to social, economic, cultural, political and ecological determinants of health which also impact on sanitation practices are not understood.
"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
