Toilets, taps and training – a lifesaving trio

We are flushing away poverty, one toilet at a time.

By donating £60 to twin your toilet, you help fund a project in a poor community that will enable families to build a basic toilet, have access to clean water and learn about hygiene – a vital combination that saves lives.

When you twin, we’ll send you a certificate to hang in your loo – showing a photograph of your overseas toilet twin and GPS coordinates so you can look up your twin’s location on Google Maps!

2 billion people don't have somewhere safe to go to the toilet

A way out of poverty

Bawili is the first-ever president of the Community Health Club in her village in DRC. She’s passionate that everyone should build a toilet.

‘You must do this for your family’s health and safety,’ she tells everyone.

But, as a widow, Bawili did not have the strength or enough money to build her own toilet – so the club voted unanimously to build one for her. They gathered materials and dug the pit; Bawili helped make the bricks.

Her simple latrine is her pride and joy. ‘My toilet brings us freedom, privacy and dignity as a family.’
