They are relentless in their commitment to improve children’s access to education and healthcare, and empower families to build a sustainable future for their children.

Improving Healthcare for Girls at School
No. of lives impacted:
A lack of child friendly sanitation in schools has lead to high rates of absenteeism and ultimately drop-outs. The absence of a dignified sanitary solution is hampering continued
education, especially for adolescent
girls, and in turn behavioural change in children and within the communities.
We’re getting involved to establish child-friendly sanitation infrastructures and help promote behavioural change (through education and awareness of safe sanitation and hygiene
practises), with an aim towards realising
gender equality, dignity and identity of school children.
Community-level monitoring of usage and maintenance of infrastructure will be built in during the project planning stage for monitoring mechanisms and sustainable exit strategy. The
behavioural change amongst children
will provide a lifelong lesson in healthy, dignified living.
What do we need to do?
We need to raise £115,000 to make this fantastic project a reality, and start changing the lives of thousands of children, so Parcel Monkey has pledged to make a donation for every single
purchase that is made through our
websites. To help us reach our target, we’re also asking our amazing customers to get in on the act and make a donation towards our goal. Together, we can give these children a positive and sustainable start to
With an average daily income of $3 per person, India has become a ‘middle income country’, deemed to be wealthy enough to deal with its own problems and therefore no longer requiring aid. With aid resources needing to be prioritised, support from international governments and NGOs has been diverted to those countries deemed to be ‘more’ in need.
However, for those living at or below India’s average daily income, the reality is that their poverty is still extreme and in some cases, absolute. Indeed, as India continues to grow, as with other middle income countries, the gap widens between those ‘with’ and those ‘without’.
