- Field Notes:
The students did not have a clean, private place to use the bathroom, which is essential for preventing diseases and keeping kids in school. Your money has provided students here with improved sanitation (toilets), which can reduce diarrheal deaths by as much as 32%. You've also helped build handwashing stations here so students can practice safe hygiene every day.
