Stay in School!

Description

In Malawi, a clean and private school restroom with running water reinforces this adolescent girl’s confidence and educational aspirations.

Many girls in developing countries drop out of school as they reach puberty. Their families may consider them ready for marriage and an unnecessary burden on the family. They often feel uncomfortable dealing with their period and their body’s changes. Girls who live in rural areas where water and sanitation facilities are not adequate for their needs are most likely to curtail their schooling.

In 2014, World Vision reached an average of four schools every day with clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to keep girls and boys healthy and in school.
