Forget your Carol Vorderman Maths genius manual. Sack the private Latin tutor. All you really need to get ahead in class is… a toilet, writes CEO Lorraine Kingsley.
Ok, maybe not in Britain today. ...
Here’s the thing... 2.4 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.
Justine Kukundakute and her children in Uganda have been given a gift – and it’s a gift that keeps on giving.
A local Toilet Twinning partner taught Justine the skills she needed to build a simple loo for her family in Kabale district. They also taught her the importance of hygiene and hand washing.
It has, quite literally, changed her life. The family’s health has improved dramatically. Before they had a loo, the family suffered from intestinal worms and diarrhoea.
Justine is now part of the local Community Development Team, who help others build their own latrines. So she can give the same life-changing gift to others.
