When a girl gets her period, it’s likely she won’t go to school. Often, it’s because her school doesn’t have a girls’ bathroom. In addition to health risks, the lack of quality, private sanitation facilities leaves girls vulnerable to harassment and abuse. But your gift will build a safe bathroom at a school so that girls don’t have to sacrifice their education during their periods!
