  • Field Notes:

    charity: water projects at schools like this one use clean water as a catalyst to improve the overall health of kids and the surrounding community. That means each school project includes a water source, but also hygiene training, a handwashing station and toilets for the students.

    Girls in developing countries miss up to a week of class each month, or even drop out of school, when they hit puberty because they don’t have a private place to use the bathroom or wash at school. charity: water invests in separate latrines for girls and boys to ensure privacy and maintain dignity for students. Improved sanitation (toilets) alone can reduce the likelihood of waterborne diseases by 32%. And private latrines built at schools not only improve health; they have been shown to increase attendance, especially among girls (World Health Organization). Read why latrines are so important to Khadija from Bangladesh here.
