Challenge

In addition to the lack of privacy and dignity, women are far more vulnerable to the risk of physical and sexual assault. Women lose valuable time going far away from home just to relieve them or help a family member. When girls hit puberty, without access to private facilities, attendance and dropout rates increase dramatically. In the workplace, unhygienic facilities can cause women to have higher rates of absenteeism and subsequently lose productivity and income.

Lack of good toilets and hygiene education is a big problem in rural communities in Toba Tek Singh. This project intent to construct ventilated toilets and provides hygiene education to the targeted communities especially girls and women to reduce diarrhea related illnesses by 25% to 50%. Making sanitation accessible is not only critical to saving women lives, but also the precious time and money the victims spend in trying to recover from such illness

Sustainability will be obtained through sensitization of the beneficiaries on the wise utilization of the structures to be constructed. Hygiene education and community laws will be enforced against misuse
