Ghana - Girl-friendly toilets for schoolgirls: helping adolescent girls

At all times, adolescent girls need facilities that provide privacy and security to avoid risk of harassment. The designs and services should ensure that all school girls have (1) separate latrines from boys, (2) water for washing, and (3) free or subsidized sanitary napkins. The development organization Plan International (Ghana) being acutely aware of this, took up the challenge and decided to develop a model ‘girl-friendly latrine’.
