Sanitation and Hygiene Program
Good toilets with Sanitation and Hygiene Program in every government school continues to be a distant dream, despite the government sanctioning projects for states and union territories. The highest number of government schools with no toilet facility for girls is in West Bengal, followed by Karnataka even as various studies have shown non-availability of this facility is one of the prime reasons for the girls to drop out.Many states have failed to address this issue on a priority basis. Lovedale has initiated the reconstruction of Toilets in ,partnership with Texas Instruments with a mission to introduce clean, safe and secured toilets for both boys and girls in Govt schools across the District.
Lovedale Foundation’s school Sanitation and Hygiene Program is a prerequisite to develop and sustain a healthy physical and learning environment in the school. This is also an entry point to reach the community at a large with the demonstration of good hygiene practices. Improved toilet facilities in school not only build a healthy physical environment, but also ensure a steady increase in enrollment and retention; particularly of girl children.
The benefits of school toilets
- Provide privacy and comfort for the school children especially girl children and female teachers
- Support retention of girl children in higher classes
- Inculcate the behavioural change in the school children by using toilets and urinals
- Create a healthy environment and maintain environmental cleanliness in the school.
