Today, the 28th May, is International Menstrual Hygiene Day – a day to raise awareness of the challenges that women and girls worldwide face due to their menstruation as well as highlight solutions that address these challenges.
Every year, on the 8th March, International Women’s Day takes place to celebrate the social, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action to accelerate gender parity.
At Sanitation First we’re marking International Women’s Day by:
A big and personal “THANK YOU” on behalf of all of the people you have helped. The kind donations to our Tamil Nadu Emergency flood appeal made a real difference and helped us to repair all the toilets damaged by the extreme weather.
Congratulations and well done to our dedicated team, who ran the Bath Half Marathon on Sunday 13th March – The money raised will enable us to build more urgently-needed Grosan (composting) toilets for families in Tamil Nadu, Southeast India, where the vast majority of people do not have any sanitation facilities and open defecation is commonplace.
