Name of the call: Education for all through Peepoo Sanitation

Every year, children lose 272 million school days due to diarrhoea and other related diseases caused by lack of clean water, sanitation and hygiene. In an environment of poor health, children are unable to fulfil their education potential. The problem is especially grave in urban informal settlements where the accessibility and the state of sanitation facilities are very poor.

A major reason that many girls do not finish schools can be directly traced to the lack of toilets. Women who are educated are less likely to die during childbirth. Each additional year of education is estimated to prevent two maternal deaths for every 1,000 women. Research also shows that for every 10 % increase in female literacy, a country’s economy can grow by 0.3 %.

The overall objective of this call is to support initiatives that work towards achieving quality education for all through provision of safe and clean sanitation. This call should contribute to the following main Sustainable Development Goals (SDG);

Extra credit will be given to those proposals who also can include elements that links to these SDGs;
