The building work is now complete and the toilets are in use. Below are some photographs of the two toilet blocks. One block has separate toilets for boys and girls and the other for girls only has a changing room and incinerator which means that girls will no longer have to miss out on their education while they are menstruating.
We are delighted to announced that we have now reached our target of raising £2,000 for the girl friendly toilet block. This is thanks to the very generous support of club members since we launched the project. The funds are on the way to Nepal Water and Health Authority and we understand that construction will soon be underway. We will be kept up to date with progress and will post updates and photos as we receive them.
Our Plymouth club is aiming to raise £2000 to pay for the construction of a girl friendly toilet block in Shri Prabha Higher School. Menstruation hygiene is a big problem in schools, with most girls missing school altogether during this time of the month. The new block in the will house four toilets, a changing room, an incinerator and shower.
Our fund raising for this project kicks off in August with a cream tea at our President’s home. Other events will be held during the coming months. If you would like to DONATE to this project please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Earlier this year the club used project funds to pay for an enhanced water supply throughout a 500-pupil secondary school in Nepal. The Shri Prabha Higher School in the Baglung district was nominated by our contact on the ground in the Nepal Water and Health Authority. Now pupils have access to six drinking taps from two places in the school, and they are very happy!
