A gift to be cherished

THE DISTRICT Rural Development Agency of Tirunelveli recently honoured the more than 200 members of the Block Hygiene Education School Sanitation Team (BHESST), who had been given the task of assessing the sanitary conditions of schools across the district and ranking them based on the sanitary facilities established on the school premises.

When it was decided to present a memento to each member of the team in recognition of their work, the project officer, P. Ponniah, designed a clock with slogans of the Total Sanitation Campaign and got it done by the lacquerware artisans of Ambasamudhram.

The result was truly impressive and was readily appreciated by the BHESST members.
