INTRODUCTIONS

My name is Moir Walita from Malawi, Africa, I am here in the United States, New Mexico, Santa Fe advocating for girls bathrooms for girls. I am expecting to go back to Malawi on the 25 December. I will be sharing progress report through the same platform and on special cases to some individuals.

BACKGROUND

Roscher Youth Development center is a youth NGO that promotes the welfare of the youths in the district. The organisation with support from support Malawi of Germany has managed to carry out three main programs, computer training to the youth, construction of earth bag houses as a way of conserving our natural resources and minimizing disaster related cases, girls child education life skill training.
Through the school girls life skills training project, girls in Rumphi are able to voice out their concern regarding education. However it is still a challenge to provide necessary facilities such as girls bathrooms.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

Roscher Youth development organisation has noted with great concerns on the poor infrastructure for girls students in our schools.
There are no girls bathrooms where girls can help themselves when they are in menstrual period. Girl students are offered only a tiny pit latrine dug in the ground and covered with wooden poles, with a bad smell and flies all over, without running water, and no privacy.
This situation is a contributing factor to the girls’ drop out rate of 33%. Most girls don't shun from classes for a period of 5 to seven days every month when they are menstruating to avoid embarrassment and shame from boys as there are no bathrooms where they can help themselves. The absenteeism of girls contribute to poor class performance and grades compared to boys who are full time in class. Many walk a long way to get to their schools since the district does not have a boarding girls school.

So far only one girls bathroom has been built with funding from a California organisation the pollination.
