Water for a school $104.00

Safe water is perfect for the person with everything, because it would mean everything to a school in Papua New Guinea. This gift of clean water can give a clean bill of health, a better education and a real chance to escape a vicious cycle of poverty.

"All the girls are happy when they built our shower room. Because some girls…when they see their periods they leave school, and they don't come back. Now we will go into this shower room and clean ourselves and come back into the classroom and learn properly. And also we will wash our hands after using toilet. Thank you. We are happy for all these things that you bring to this school," said Rebecca, Papua New Guinea.

Rebecca lives in Kururumba, Papua New Guinea. Her favourite subject at school is maths and she dreams of being a pilot one day.

Her school now has clean water and hygienic toilets, and hand washing is now part of the daily routine. Girls stay in school longer because there is a shower to use when they get their period. Rebecca is healthier now and can spend more time in school getting the education she needs for her future.
