It is an undeniable fact that the absence of a safe toilet adds to the vulnerability of women.
A man can unzip anywhere without fear and shame. It is the women, who lack access to clean toilets and have to wake up before sunrise or wait for the sky to get dark and walk miles to find the right and safe place to defecate. If not a human issue, toilets certainly are a women’s issue.
Women get Raped, Harassed and Abused in trying to find a place to defecate

Become part of our journey and create an enormous impact in the lives of over 6000 DAUGHTERS
Imagine being a mother of a bubbly 12-year-old girl in a house, the size of 2 dining tables, in an urban slum.
You don't have a toilet not just because of a financial crunch, but also because of a space crunch.
In dense urban slums, an in-home toilet is rarely an option.
So Community toilets are an appropriate sanitation solution. But many urban slums do not have community toilets and even if community toilets are present, they are FILTHY and unused as not properly maintained.
IMAGINE GOING TO RELIEVE YOURSELF IN SOMETHING LIKE THIS
At dinner, you eat little and drink less to reduce the pressure of the basic call of nature, because you know that it might be too difficult to find a clean toilet and too dangerous to find a safe place amidst the evil forces of night; when men shine torch on women defecating, or hide behind the adjacent bush to peep and pelt stones to tease.
Moreover, you also ask your daughter not to take more than a few sips of water else she would have to step out of the house at night, And you know it's not going to be safe.
You get up early in the morning, walk a mile (or two or three) to find a spot away from the normal gaze and finally relieve.
And this continues. Day-after-day-after-day until eternity. Holding your pee and poo OR using dirty toilets leads to severe health complications like Urinary Tract Infections.
