A Better ToiletFor A Cleaner World
Enhancing the Quality of Life for Women and Girls through Improved Sanitation
Currently, 2.5B people lack access to improved sanitation, and daily 2200 children die from diarrheal disease. One fourth of Indian school-age girls drop out during puberty due to lack of sanitation options during menses.
Empowering women and girls to lead in solving the sanitation crisis will improve lives, livelihoods, health, safety, and dignity. Their leadership will transform the sanitation value chain from user interface, to collection, to treatment and reuse of fecal sludge.
The next phase of our program reaffirms our ongoing commitment to address sanitation through the eyes of women and girls, focusing on the unique role that women and girls can play in addressing the global sanitation crisis. A problem that disproportionately impacts women and girls, should be addressed from the perspective of women and girls. This video looks at the problem and solution from the perspective of a 12-year old girl name Lakshmi, living in India.
