Many village schools do not have proper toilet and related water & sanitation facilities, students wander out into the forest (or open field) to relieve themselves. Even in schools with existing toilet, basic water & sanitation facility is lacking, resulting in the dirty and unhealthy situation. This gives rise to various diseases. Additionally, girl students (when they reach the age of puberty) do not come to class during their monthly menstruation period, and gradually drop-out from school.


The project will develop basic infrastructure - separate girl friendly toilet (which has provision to dispose the sanitary pads), water and sanitation facilities - in 10 schools. Some of the schools are accessible on foot hours away from homes. The community is aware of this pressing need and is prepared to contribute unskilled labor and further maintain it.

Long-Term Impact

As school is the place where students spend most of their time during the day light, basic facilities should be ensured in the school compound. Such a good environment will make the students feel better and they will love to come to school. This could lead to increase in class attendance, which in turn will improve the education level and health of the students. 2,000 girl students in 10 schools will be benefited.
