This project was launched at Saraswati Shishu Vidya Mandir School, Pantnagar in September, 2014 supplementing the Swach Vidyalaya Abhiyaan of Government of India. The aim of the project is to construct separate toilet for girls in School to reduce their dropout in the age of puberty and provide access to potable drinking water to the children to protect them from water borne diseases.
A need assessment exercise was conducted by the CSR team of Pantnagar to identify the requirements of the school following many cases of girls dropping out- the reason behind this was the absence of separate sanitation facilities for the girls in the School. To address this issue, a sanitation complex was constructed by MCL – Pantnagar consisting 4 urinals for girls, 4 for boys and 2 bathrooms with potable drinking water facility. These facilities were dedicated to Saraswati Shishu Vidya Mandir by Mrs. Sarika Minda.
