I have learned from (GIWA's) Swachhta Kranti that firstly we need to build toilets in our houses, but before that, we have to bring changes in ourselves because when we will change, then our family will change, then our neighbours will change, then our village will change, then our cities, state and all of India will change."  - Surendra from Chattisgarh
