For quite a long time planners have been engaged in making villages clean and hygienic with all the facilities of health and hygiene. Efforts in this direction have helped to achieve most of the targets but with very little satisfaction and accomplishment. The reason for this may be the lack of acknowledgment of the importance of various social indicators like gender and education in devising any awareness creating methods. This study tries to explore the role of educational level and gender of rural population when it comes to the creation of any awareness creating method for them.


Key words: Sanitation, strategy, gender, education, Haryana.
