Our one of the key findings in rural areas is that child marriage and under-investment in girls’ education still prevails. Another of our priority programmes therefore is to support girls’ education – particularly those who have low income parents in rural areas. Girls in Nepal regularly miss school for five days every month because they lack money for sanitary supplies and because schools have unhygienic facilities including a lack of girl-friendly bathrooms. This means that some girls have been missing an average of 35-40 days of their education every year because they hesitate to come to school due to these personal difficulties. We have initiated a campaign to establish a “Girl Friendly Toilet” in every public school in rural areas.
