The ‘Harpic World Toilet College’ located in Aurangabad, Maharashtra is helping sanitation workers by uplifting their work quality and educating them about the hazards that they are exposed to while eliminating these inhuman practices.
Around 3,200 sanitation workers have been trained in a year. The workers have secured jobs in recognised national and local organisations and companies. The college, which was set up in August 2018, is run by British consumer goods major Reckitt Benckiser.
“Since its launch, the college has successfully trained 3,200 sanitation workers and helped secure sustainable employment opportunities for 100 per cent of the candidates,” Reckitt Benckiser said in a statement.

“The trained sanitation workers are equipped with the right knowledge and skill, to further train others in the community and thereby create a favourable domino effect to thousands of sanitation workers and families,” the company further added.
