In Papua New Guinea one of the biggest obstacles for girls to enjoy an education is unsafe water and poor sanitation at schools. 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, giving them a head start in life.
