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.
I have been participating in the TCS 10K Bangalore for the last three years to raise funds for Reaching Hand and this year I am participating in it to raise funds to build toilets for girls. On 13 May 2018 I will run in the TCS 10K Bangalore! With your support I will reach my goal. Your donation of any amount would be great help towards to 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.
