Orathur Primary & Secondary Schools, Tamil Nadu

This combined primary and senior school project provided sanitation and water facilities for approximately 750 boys and girls.  Many of the girls would stop attending school as they reached puberty and the privacy these units provided will ensure they receive a good education.  All of the children benefit from privacy and hygiene practices.
