About Sewa International’s Girls' Hygiene Project:

https://sewausa.org/campaign-detail/fund-a-toilet-for-the-girl-child

It all began in 2013 when Jayanthi Ramanan ji scouted the streets and slums of Bangalore and realized that girl children are not sent to school due to lack of toilets and menstrual hygiene issues. She appealed to Sewa USA for this great cause of putting girl children ahead and break the gender inequality to give girls and women equal opportunities.

Thus, started Seva Kirana’s project of toilet building in India!

Till today total of 210 toilets have been built in Bangalore, Bandipur, Bidar, Bijapur in Karnataka, Lucknow and Varanasi in UP and Dindigul in Tamil Nadu.

A sanitary napkin machine is provided to a school in Bidar with 1600 children out of which 900 are girls. Kids make their own napkins and distribute them at very low cost thus creating a sustainable model.

The plan is to scale up the number of toilets to 500 and sanitary napkin machines to 20 during 2018!

Kindly help make every girl’s dream to be educated possible.

Note: Doors open at 4-00pm 

Help make it happen
