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 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!
Janie is celebrating the power of community and having a proper toilet for the first time. Her family used to have an old makeshift toilet which was unsafe – they didn’t have enough money to replace it.
When a Toilet Twinning Partner started to work with families in her village in Rwanda, Janie didn’t dare hope her family would benefit. But, our Partner provided cement and iron sheeting for Janie – and community members helped her family build a safe, new latrine!
‘Our toilet was very old and did not meet the standard the government required, but it was very expensive to construct a new one,’ Janie says. ‘We’re grateful to our community for helping us construct a good toilet that meets all the standards!’
