Title
Ganga Sagar Mela Festival and Sanitation
Description
The Ganga Sagar Mela Fetival is a meeting of million of pilgrims to cleanse themselves in the Ganges Delta. However, due to a lack of access to toilets and sanitary knowledge, it has also become a site for massive amounts of human waste. That’s all changing as the Global Interfaith WASH Alliance of India teams up with UNICEF to have faith leaders of different creeds teach followers how to begin using more sanitary practices.
