ALL THAT STANDS BETWEEN BRIDGET AND HER DREAM JOB IS A TOILET
Bridget is ambitious, like you. She and her friends want to be nurses, teachers, engineers.
But all too often girls like her drop out of education early – because their school does not have a toilet.
So their dreams of a job fade and they end up as desperately poor banana farmers like their parents. Until recently, 20 girls dropped out of Bridget’s school each year.
But not any more, thanks to Toilet Twinning.
Our partners in Uganda recently built new toilets at Bridget’s school, complete with a changing room for older girls, and they installed a fresh water tap stand. They’re also teaching the whole community about hygiene, and helping families build their own latrines.
Already, 65 more girls have enrolled at the school. Bridget is staying put and dreaming big.
