Our staff visit many girls school in our area and see that how girls are safer with the problem of toilets. Even some time they are not able to come in the school because they are sick to go for open defecation. Because of that situation of the education of girls are different then boys. Toilet is big issue in Pakistan. In the meantime Government of Pakistan is also not doing anything for this big issue.
In Pakistan, more than 43 million people defecate in the open. Every 24 hours, 320 children die from diarrhea – the result of a deadly combination of unsafe water and poor sanitation conditions. Water and sanitation related diseases are responsible for some 60 per cent of the total number of deaths of children under five years of age.
“Access to toilets remains the unmentionable, often shameful secret in Pakistan.” “But it’s invisibility doesn’t make it less harmless; in fact it is quite the reverse especially as poor sanitation conditions contribute to malnutrition and the high level of stunting in Pakistan and provide a fertile ground for spreading the Polio virus. Lack of access to safe sanitation is quite literally killing Pakistani children – day after day after day.”
Especially it’s really a difficult for the girls to overcome on this problem. They have to go for the toilet in the early morning to safe themselves from the man but sometime it’s easy. Even because of that they are facing so many problems with hygiene as they did not have water in the field to use it. Because of that it’s very important to have toilet at home to safe the girls from many incidents and also safe from many diseases which they because of the hygiene problems.
So there is lot to do in Pakistan for this issue as day by day it’s creating problems for the girls and other family members for their health. I request all our friends please give openly to save the girls in Pakistan and for their families.
Please help us to help the others to contribute their better life.
