Jeevan works with counterparts to rebuild the bathroom facilities for the students.

Our community high school serves 641 students, 411 whom are girls, currently have four unisex bathrooms, no hand-washing station exist, the bathrooms are littered with trash, all are consistently unclean, and students have to use the water basin to rinse their hands. A menstrual hygiene survey revealed more than 100 female students are not comfortable using the bathrooms and sometimes will miss school, leave early, or come late. There are only two female staff who are responsible for the cleaning facilities. Additional staff and students are needed to ensure the continued cleanliness. Improvements are required to improve student/teacher accountability to maintain facilities, promote hand-washing education, menstrual hygiene/health, and creating boundaries to ensure adequate privacy for female/male students. Repairing the current bathrooms and building two connecting sinks and designating it for the boys only and building 4 new girls only bathrooms with sinks inside will create a safe space, especially for female students to maintain their hygiene and comfort to use the bathroom and hand-washing. PCV, female health teacher, midwife, counterpart, and staff plan to conduct menstrual hygiene classes to educate female students. Additionally hand-washing classes for all students. This project is needed to prevent more students, especially females, from missing the opportunity to study consistently because the bathroom facilities are not maintained properly and the school is lacking an adequate number of latrines to ensure an enabling environment for education.
