A woman with disability speaks up for sanitation

I was one of the key presenters in the closing ceremony of the National Sanitation Action Week, held on 11 June in Kathmandu. The event was really informative for me. As a wheelchair user I am challenged on a daily basis when trying to access toilets. As a woman, it’s even harder.  It’s depressing that there’s not a single toilet that I can access.  This meant I had to stop going to school, college and many places I wanted to be. I missed my lessons at school and had to stay at home for self study. In a way, I was deprived of my fundamental human rights.
