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 LOO-VELY LITTLE STORY

Zargul and her family used to go to the toilet outside – and often fell sick. Zargul’s son nearly died of diarrhoea.

They used to ascribe to a widely-held Afghan belief that washing your hands before a meal would mean you ‘lose the blessing of the mullah’.

But a Tearfund partner has taught them about hygiene and handwashing. Now, the family enjoy good health. They’ve built a toilet and take pride in cleaning the yard, scrubbing their pots and washing their hands. Zargul carries soap in her pocket wherever she goes.
