The goal of our “Girls Glory” project is to see the above saying come true in every Government school in Bangalore, Karnataka. Our tailor-made programs and sensitization workshops aim towards achieving this goal. We are not only bringing the awareness, but our project also includes providing the facilities to bring the community change among the underprivileged.

CONSTRUCTION OF RESTROOMS- TOILETS AND HAND WASHING UNITS

We have initiated the renovation and construction of Restrooms in the schools, as per UNICEF usage norms of 1:35 (1 Toilet for 35 children). After choosing the best location in consultation with the school management, we have assigned the contractor through ‘Work Orders’ with detailed specifications with quality check, monitoring and payment norms. Progress was monitored jointly by the school management and Reaching Hand Team. In total 4 toilets construction have began in July.
