Not only is the condition of the toilets in many village schools in UP poor but also children are being discriminated upon because they belong to lower castes and "don't clean the toilets properly".

Every school needs good students and students need good sanitation. According to India Sanitation Portal, access to sanitary toilets not only ensures dignity of the individual but also positively impacts health, well-being and productivity, reduces drop-out rates and encourages regular attendance in schools.

The Total Sanitation Campaign, a initiative of the Government to make India free from open defecation hasn't achieved all that it set out to. The graphs tell the true story.

Prabha, 23 years old lives in Mankapur village in Uttar Pradesh. She recently delivered a baby boy at home. Prabha has never used a toilet in her life. Every day of her pregnancy, she woke up before dawn, carried a mug of water and went 1.2 km away in the fields to defecate. The only care that was provided to Prabha was a teenager girl sent with her to the fields (miles away from the house) at the time of pre-dawn. She continues to do this after she has had her baby also.
