Toilets & Water for school children, rural India
This project hosted by Global Giving will help to build toilets and maintain them for school children in rural schools in Tamil Nadu. The schools in Tamil Nadu lack basic clean latrines. This is a main cause of village children being absent from school and/or eventually dropping out of school altogether. The aim is to build private latrines for boys and girls in schools. The project will also take up the maintenance of toilets by appointing a local woman for daily cleaning. Providing better hygiene for students will improve the educational environment and will increase attendance rates. At the moment they are over half way to their goal of $60,000. Help provide toilets for schools in Tamil Nadu and make a lasting difference in the lives of children.
