June 17, 2017
The PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) India Foundation handed over new sanitation facilities to the Ramakrishna Mission Blind Boys' Academy in Kolkata. The facilities will help over 700 visually impaired students.
The handover of the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) project will also help the teachers and extended staff. The project started in October 2016 with the aim to build toilets that are hygienic, safe and in a comfortable environment for school going boys who are visually challenged.
Training sessions on how to use the new facilities and workshops on maintaining personal hygiene will also be held. The idea is to create a comfortable environment for children in the school.
