Sanjana Singh is a 30-years-old transgender from Bhopal, and runs an NGO, Mitra Shringaar Samiti, for her community. When the Madhya Pradesh government requested her NGO to be a part of the Swacch Bharat Mission, she happily agreed. It is now the team’s mission to campaign from door to door for better sanitation in the villages.

In an interview with the NDTV, Sanjana said, “It’s a good opportunity given by the state government. I could not say no and became part of the campaign. It has helped me prove to the society that we transgenders are capable of doing more than entertaining people.”

Her team has since been using their singing and dancing skills to make 12 villages in the Bhopal district cleaner. The impact of their work is now visible. In Naandini village, each of the 131 homes now has a toilet. In the remaining 11 villages, toilets have been built in 80 percent of the houses. Seeing the impact of the work done by Sanjana and her team, the govt is thinking of taking their help in 40 more villages.
