Expected Achievement

Toilets, and the access to toilets and established sanitation standards, are a very important issue. Toilets with running water facilities will bring in a higher standard of hygiene, and less absenteeism from girls during menstrual cycle time. Maintenance of these toilets is equally important and hence maintenance staff play an important role along with cleaning materials for these toilets.These toilets will benefit 1700 rural children in learning good hygiene practice and have a healthy life.
