Here’s the thing... 2.5 billion people don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. That’s more than a third of the people on the planet.
We decided that was bang out of order…
So we invented Toilet Twinning. Now, you can get excited about life-changing long-drops!
By twinning your toilet, you help those in desperate poverty to have access to a proper latrine, clean water and the information they need to be healthy.
Bishwo Raj Gurung, a retired teacher and latrine owner from Nepal, says:
‘When I was a teacher, with a class of 40 students, only 50 per cent would be in school [during the rainy season], because of diarrhoea and sickness.
‘When I got sick, I had to buy medicines and go to hospital, so I was a weak man, and a poor man.
‘Now, our children feel very proud of the fact that we have a toilet. They know that they are healthier because of it.
‘This latrine is my guarantee for old age. It will give me another 30 years of life.’
