Chandigarh, November 19

To mark World Toilet Day on Thursday, schools in eight villages in Haryana were adopted by a building material company for constructing toilets under its 'Build A Toilet, Build Her Future' campaign.

Introduced under the company's initiative 'Hygiene that Empowers', the campaign focuses on encouraging the girl students to continue schooling by providing access to adequate sanitation infrastructure at schools.

The company will provide infrastructure and maintenance of toilets, enabling and empowering young girls in these villages.

"Aimed at addressing the pressing issue of nearly 20 million yearly dropouts by girl students due to lack of proper and private sanitation facilities within the school premises, the campaign is undertaken in a phased manner with a long-term vision to be extended to the national level," Sandip Somany, Chairman and Managing Director of Brilloca Ltd, said.  — IANS
