Swati, 7 standard student of a Govt. schools where Reaching Hand is working, told that she was in anxiety prior to the monthly periods as there was no toilet in the school. She was even considering to dropout from school as her studies were affected being absent in those days.
There are hundreds of children go to government schools with limited or no facilities. The young girls are worse-hit students at the schools in terms of privacy. Many would dropout from schools or become long absentees once they reach puberty as they are scared and ashamed due to lack of proper toilet.
Therefore, I want these children like Swati to continue their education with dignity and confidence having proper toilet facilities at their schools. I am committed to raise fund for toilets through Reaching Hand and the estimated cost for a toilet is Rupees One Lakh.
On 27 May 2018 I will participate in the TCS 10K Bangalore to raise funds to build toilets for girls! I wish to reach my goal with your support. Your donation of any amount would be great help towards reaching my goal.
All donations that you send carry tax exemption privilege and your generosity will play a role in the effort to support the cause. Thank you so much for your support.
