Hygiene kits and construction of toilets for girls

There are many areas in Pakistan where open defecation is considered normal. Construction of toilets is not the only important thing but educating the people in villages about the importance of hygiene and sanitation is also important. Open defecation results in the spread of many diseases which are harmful. Now that the COVID-19 virus has spread all accross the world, open defecation practices need to stop so that the spread of diseases could be controlled and this could only be possible by providing the quality awareness and education about hygiene and sanitation. Along with all these issues open defecation practices are also not safe for women and girls, especially now, when there is a long list of harrassment and rape cases in the country.

Joy Foundation hopes that soon we will have enough resources for this project and through these funds we will be able to construct more toilets and spread more hygiene and sanitation awareness in communities where people are still practicing open defecation. Your support and funds will help us achieve this goal.

Provide solar and clean water to school children

Joy Foundation has been doing the best to provide the most needed facilities in the Joy Foundation School. The school is in a backward area where there is no facility of electricity and clean water. The village has underground water source but it is not safe for drinking. Taking these things into consideration Joy Foundation installed 2 solar panels in the school which helped us to provide lights and fans in the two rooms. We also installed a water filter that would clean the underground water and the children and teachers will be able to drink that water.

Now that the two rooms have light bulbs and fans, Joy Foundation will be constructing 2 more rooms in the school for which we will need more solar panels and light bulbs and fans. The number of students in the school has increased that is why Joy Foundation will be constructing two more rooms. We hope that soon we will have more donations for this project and through those donations Joy Foundation will be able to provide 2 more solar panels that will be helpful to provide electricity in the 2 new rooms.

Emergency support for COVID-19 in Pakistan

During this time of COVID-19, the deserving communities need our support. The governent has imposed the lockdown in the country again and it is very difficult for the people to earn during this tough time. The communities which were already neglected have become in a tough situation, with lack of jobs and very less to eat and look after the families. Joy Foundation has been working with these communities so that they are not neglected anymore because they deserve the suppert just like anyone else. Because we have lack of funding for this project, we supported these families with some local donations that we collected from different stakeholders of Joy Foundation. These local donations were directly used to provide for the food items for the families of needy people.

We hope that soon we will have enough funding for the project that will help out more pople out there who are having tough time during the COVID-19 crisis. We are aiming to reach out to all the deserving communities in Toba Tek Singh. We have supported one community with the local donations and we hope soon we will have more donations for the project so we could support all the deserving communities who have been neglected during the pandemic.
