Toilets Improve Girls’ School Attendance

The Rotary Club of Poona, India, the 3rd Rotary Club formed in India with a charter date of 1936, proudly partnered with the Rotary Club of Stavenger, Norway in providing toilets to 13 rural schools. The impact: school attendance by girls who had reached puberty improved considerably.
