Latrines for girls - New!
Lack of girls-only latrines has a particularly strong
correlation with absenteeism among pubescent
girls who often avoid schools while menstruating or
drop out fully upon reaching puberty. This is because
they lack a safe and private space to manage their
sanitation needs during their periods and are expected
to do so in the open air sometimes in view of male students.
This gift can help girls continue to attend school and give them choices about a future that doesn’t only include marriage and motherhood. It gives them the choice to do just about anything!
