Meghan Markle promoted the importance of hygiene and sanitation in India

Recently, an age-old video has gone viral on Twitter regarding the Duchess. After having worked diligently in her native place and the neighboring countries, the former Suits Actress had once made her way to India. The purpose of the visit could not have been more predictable. Given India’s comparatively stereotypical and unhygienic circumstances, the Duchess had come on a campaign to help young girls and women survive through the same.

Hence, back in 2017, Meghan Markle partnered with World Vision to speak out for young girls’ right to education and Sanitation in India. The charity World Vision shared a previously released video of Meghan Markle during her visit where she primarily focused on gender equality and girls’ access to education and proper hygiene. She is a firm believer in how the stigmatization of menstruation can affect girls’ education.

Fans thank the Duchess for her selfless work 

Markle visited various schools and institutions in the Capital city, Delhi and Mumbai with new toilet facilities as she promoted the importance of having clean hygiene for girls. She tells the cameras, “What we found is that the enrollment at this school went up three times once the latrines were built so that girls had access to clean hygiene and bathroom facilities while they’re at school.
