“Throughout all life stages, women and girls bear the greatest burdens caused by the lack of toilet access. Girls are more likely to drop out of school if they don’t have access to a safe and clean toilet. Women and girls can also risk harassment and sexual abuse when trying to use public toilets or when trying to find somewhere to defecate in the open. Universal access to sanitation has a clear role to play in defending women’s safety, dignity and equality.” ~UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson
Ammachi Labs has already trained thousands of women in various Indian villages and states how to build toilets to protect their basic health, hygiene and safety.
