Zac and I are wanting to raise $$ for this very needy charity, "We Cant Wait" as part of our walk on the Kokoda track in PNG.
WHEN Blackburn businessman Mark Balla visited slum villages on a business trip to India a few years ago, he noticed schools were full of small children and teenage boys, but no teenage girls.
He wondered: where were the teenage girls?
What Mr Balla learnt was teenage girls had stopped going to school because there were often no toilets.
“It became clear that once girls get their period, they stop going to school,” Mr Balla said.
“My daughter was of that age, so it was really relevant to me. I thought, how horrible.”
Mr Balla said for adolescent girls in India, it became a time of mourning, as they couldn’t easily participate in life or have the same opportunities as the boys.
We are all very fortunate to live in a country where we don't have these issues. Zac and I are keen to help those not so lucky.
Thanks for your help.
