The Visit USA Ball is held each year on American Independence Day in the Hilton London Bankside. 

The Visit USA Ball has kindly been supporting Just a Drop for a number of years and is currently supporting 494 children at Nachoncho Community School in Zambia with gender-sensitive latrines and handwashing facilities.

Previously, the school’s latrines were in a state of disrepair, water was located over 1.5km away, and the school did not have facilities for girls to manage their periods privately and with dignity, leading to high drop-out rates and absenteeism.  The gender-sensitive latrines with a private changing and showering area will lead to more girls attending the school. Overall, the project will improve hygiene at the school, reducing illness among the pupils and leading to improved school attendance and performance.

Thanks to Visit USA's support these children and young people can look forward to much brighter futures.
