Nepalgunj: “No toilet? Beware! You may be deprived of VDC services. Radhapur VDC of Banke prevents people sans toilets from getting recommendations for citizenship, land certificates and other services. Similarly, the schools in Radhapur VDC have provisioned to provide scholarship to those students who have toilets in their house.

Nanda Devi Sunar, a local resident of Radhapur-8, said, “My son Bal Bahadur Bika, a 5th grader at Maitahawa Secondary School, was deprived from the scholarship of dalit quota due to lack of toilet in the house.” “However, the school started to provide scholarship after I construct a toilet,” she added. “Loan provided by Radhapur VDC, NEWAH and other organizations have made it easy for the parents like me to construct toilet,” said Sunar.

“Toilet construction has gained pace due to the provision of mandatory toilet construction in order to receive scholarship made available by the Water Supply and Total Sanitation Programme,” said Kamalesh Kumar Poudel, school principal. He told that the school has already provided scholarship to 133 households within the service area of the school.
