Bangladesh Sustainability Excellence Award Finalists 2023: How Nestlé is providing sanitation for young girls

In the rural community, not having separate girls’ toilets remains one of the top reasons for girls’ school drop-out and suffering from diseases like urinary tract infection. On period days, they would rather stay home, then share the toilet with boys at school. As a part of Creating Shared Value for society, Nestlé Bangladesh PLC addresses this challenge of breaking a social taboo and in our pursuit of keeping the girls at school, the organization constructs separate Sanitation facilities for Girls in Gazipur, Bangladesh.
