Ms. Usha, the female head of the family expresses how it is helpful for them, “Having toilet at home is boon for us and could not even think of having this facility at home. Being a mother of a girl who is mentally retarded, I could not define the difficulties I undergo without toilet at home. I can see, my child Lalitha develops the habit of going to the toilet for the natural call. She does not know how to use it cleanly but still she knows she should use it for her natural call. I hope, she slowly learns to use it cleanly…. I am happy to see my child being comfortable and safe.”
