How does this gift help?
In Papua New Guinea, unsafe water and poor sanitation at schools is one of the biggest obstacles girls face in accessing an education. Many girls miss out on schooling when they have their period. Your gift ensures children stay healthier and spend more time in school getting the education they need.
“We are happy and are thankful to the people of New Zealand… they helped us with toilets and bathrooms.” – Senzie
Senzie knows what a difference it makes to have clean water and hygienic facilities. Oxfam supported local partners to build showers and toilets at her school so girls could wash and change in private. This empowers girls like Senzie to attend school when they have their period and means they won’t miss out on an education.
