1-pager on the availability of toilets in schools in Nepal.  The government of Nepal’s policy says that 1 toilet must serve 50 students. The data-set shows that, on average, one toilet serves 127 students.  Out of about 28,000 community schools, only about 18,000 schools have toilets for students of which  80 % do not have separate toilets for their girl students.
In general, the further (north) west in Nepal, the more likely it is schools do not have separate toilets for girls.
