An update from our 2015 Prince’s Prize Winner, YUVA Unstoppable Founder Amitabh Shah.
In India, there are 11 lac government schools and almost 16 cr. kids are studying in these schools. Out of this 11 lac schools, 47% of the schools do not have toilets for girls, which forces them to defecate in the open or to wait until they are home. In schools that do have girls toilets, 61% lack privacy. Almost 32% toilets are non-functional. This is a sad scenario and leads to all macro-level problems related to education and community in India. So far, YUVA Unstoppable has transformed 250 government schools across India and our target is 2000 for 2016. Investment per school is $10,000!
