About the NGO

Reaching Hand is a registered Charitable Trust started in 1996 in Bangalore to work with underprivileged children, vulnerable youths & disadvantaged women. It envisions an empowered future for all by acting as a catalyst for social change. Reaching Hand has empowered more than 15000 children, 500, teachers, 300 youths and 250 women through innovative programmes focusing on providing quality education, health care services and skill development training.


In INDIA, according to the most recent  Unified District Information System data for Education (U-DISE) for the year 2013-14, there are a total of 2,57,680 schools without a toilet. This comes to a total of 18% schools in the country without a toilet. 3.7 million Girls are out of school in India and one of the major reasons is - not having functional rest rooms in the Government Schools. Toilets are particularly important to girls' retention and attendance in the schools.


Girls Glory addresses health, sanitation & hygiene problem faced by the adolescent girls studying in the Government Schools for not having functional toilet. As a result they discontinued and dropouts. Through this program, our intention is to build toilets and educate them on proper sanitation & hygiene practices so that they continue to come to the school with more confidence and complete their studies with flying colors. We have impacted more than 5000 girls and set to impact another 50000 by the year 2020 by a network of community and corporate volunteers.


5 000 more girls will get the quality education. They will learn how to manage puberty and menstruation properly. They will have permanent and private toilet to use. Less adolescent girls will drop out of school, thus increasing their chance of completing education. Raising awareness of women's rights will alleviate the pressure of social taboos of menstruation on maturing girls.
