Girls have a Thirst for Knowledge.

But a lack of clean water, decent toilets, and good hygiene in schools is holding too many back.

1 in 3 schools don't have a decent toilet. So millions of girls around the world are forced to stay at home when they have their period.

Girls are responsible for collecting water in 8 out of 10 homes, so they spend hours collecting water instead of going to school like boys.

Clean water, decent toilets, and good hygiene in school, girls can focus on their education – and thrive. 

Help girls like Puja

"There is problem with the toilets and drinking water at my school. There is water at the school, but is contains iron and it stinks. I have fallen ill by drinking the water at school." - Puja, 12
