Worldwide, there are 4 million more girls than boys who do not attend school. One reason for this may be surprising - lack of proper toilets for girls, especially when reaching puberty. If schools offer, clean, separate toilets, enrollment goes up 11 percent. CARE works around the world to support schools in providing clean, private latrines, along with hygiene training and access to clean water - practices that are also proven to save lives.
The gifts in this catalog are virtual gifts representative of what CARE does to support the fight against poverty.
