Your donation will help build secure washrooms for girls in India and keep them in school. Together, we can build more than just washrooms—we can help girls build better futures today and for years to come.


Imagine how disruptive, unsafe and unhealthy life would be without clean, functioning washrooms. In India, schoolgirls don’t have to imagine it—they live it.

Each washroom that RUDI builds helps keep all students, girls and boys, healthy with access to clean, running water and working drainage systems.

Female students can attend school free from the fear, shame and stigma around menstruation.

Parents, leaders, governments and institutions are motivated to work together to improve hygiene, water and sanitation conditions for the entire community.

With new washrooms in her school, Sukhpreet, 8th standard student, now attends classes regularly and feels like school is her second home. She says, "We girls are happy now due to separate toilets and proper water supply in our school."

Without separate washrooms, female students in rural India have limited options. Some are forced to use a nearby field, risking their safety, health and dignity. Most girls decide to stop going to school rather than endanger themselves.

I have witnessed first-hand the bias against our daughters in India. By simply improving school facilities for girls, we are showing everyone that a girl’s education is important. This is the importance of Rise Up Daughters of India.

Education is one of the most effective ways to break the cycle of poverty, especially for girls and women. Building washrooms specifically for girls helps them stay in school longer, further their education and keep them safe from harm. 

When girls are educated, they’re less likely to fall victim to violence, early marriage and pregnancy, or human trafficking. And when educated girls have children of their own, their children are twice as likely to survive beyond the age of five.

One Change Can Make A BIG Difference


Help Girls Stay in School

One of the leading causes of school drop-outs among India’s schoolgirls is their lack of access to washrooms. 
Rise Up Daughters of India, in partnership with World Vision Canada, is on a mission to build solutions that keep girls in school.

“We were struggling because only one toilet was available and the drainage system was not proper, causing diseases and infection among us. But now we have three toilet blocks with proper water and a drainage system. Now we can concentrate more on our studies.”

Dalewala High School
