Recipient families provided unskilled labor equal in value to 3,000 RMB and Shar Dzong Development Group contributed 2,000 RMB, for a total project value of 113,330.58 RMB. Before, the project, there were no toilets in the village with villagers defecating and urinating in various areas of the village, contributing to unsanitary conditions. Conflicts and disputes were common between villagers due to the toilet problem. This project not only has created a much cleaner village but also created convenience for elderly villagers and young children.
