Britain Financing New Models of School Bathroom

Maputo — Representatives of the Mozambican and British governments met in Maputo on Friday to discuss new models of school bathrooms that will improve access for disabled children and will help girl students and women teachers manage their menstrual periods.

The national director of school health in the Ministry of Education, Arlinda Chaquisse, said this project will be of great help for pupils in urban schools, where there are cases of girls dropping out of school because of the embarrassment they feel during their periods.

“Various schools don't have good sanitary conditions, and when the girls begin their periods, they clearly feel uncomfortable”, said Chaquisse.
