Natracare, a UK-based manufacture of organic and natural solutions for personal health care has become a sponsor of WECF projects on improving sanitation in schools in the rural areas of Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia.

Natracare and WECF, both committed to healthy lifestyle for girls and women without damaging the environment, have shaken hands on cooperation on the issue of safe sanitation in developing countries, especially with a focus on girls.

Having a period is not a big deal, but not for the girls in these countries where due to the astoundingly poor sanitary conditions of the toilets they are prevented from attending the schools missing out on their education as a result.

With financial help from Natracare, WECF can build school toilets in the rural areas of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. WECF has a long track of similar successfully implemented projects in other countries that brought positive changes to the lives of many young girls and boys. The fund will be also used for hygiene and health training for children and health/rights training for girls.

Natracare will also help in fundraising from individual sponsors placing logo of WECF with a message on their products. In this way Natracare and WECF hope to generate more donations so that even more activities can be carried out in other countries where WECF has partners (Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Moldova, Azerbaijan or Armenia).
