We cant afford to Lose scientists Because of Toilets

Babli is a cute girl .A very intelligent kid.Highly creative.A topper in almost all aspects in school.But somehow after 3rd standard she left the school.She prefers staying in her house than going to school.Not that she doesn't love education.She infact is enthusiastic to study and become a scientist..But when you talk about school its a big No No for her.

          And when asked whats the reason she simply says one word "toilets".Bablis parents are not that rich ,so they enrolled her in a government School.But the school doesnt have any Toilets.And they have to setlle for Open Defecation.And for babli its a big no no because her dignity will be hurt..And unfortunately we lost a bright scientist due to unavailablity of proper Toilets.

    Babli is just a metaphorical example.There are thousands of girls in the nook and corners of India that quit school due to this Issue of toilets.

     Also Open Defecation has lot of impacts

Health Impact
1)Open Defecation results in Diarroheal diseases.
2)Open Defecation results in Weakened Immune system and stunted growth especially for children under 5 years
3)Can result in Cholera and typhoid
4)Unavailablity of Toilet can become a major issue as far as Menstural cycle is concerned

  There are also gender issues and safety concerns for girls defecating in  the open 

Socio Economic Impacts 
    The unavailability of Toilets can also lead to lot of Socio-Economic Impacts.A considerable drop out from school means an unskilled Human resource that in-turn results in Low GDP.Also since open Defecation leads to lot of Health issues,people will spend most of their life fighting Health Issues.Forget Trained Human Resource.

So its invetiable that every school in every corner of the world must have a Proper Toilet.

Domex is doing a very good job in this Regard.Domex Toilet Academy(DTA) launched on 19th November 2013 aims to become a sustainable and long-term solution to provide sanitation that benefits the local community and helps stimulate the local economy. The Toilet Academy makes toilets accessible and affordable, while promoting the benefits of clean toilets & good hygiene.

More and More NGOs, Government organisations Should come together to Eradicate this Problem.Finding solution to this issue must be the topmost Priority

We cant afford to Lose scientists Because of Toilets
