World Toilet Day is less than two months away!

World Toilet Day is a UN-designated day that takes place every year on 19 November. It’s the biggest day in the Toilet Twinning calendar – because, 1.7 billion people on this planet still don’t have a basic, life-saving toilet.

Could your group have a #BigPush to twin as many toilets as possible for people who don’t have toilets across the world?

For every £60 your group donates, you can twin with a toilet that’s been built by a family or community in Africa, Asia or Central America.

If your donation is £240 or more, you could twin with a refugee block in the Democratic Republic of Congo or Bangladesh.

Here’s why World Toilet Day matters

For two years, Ruth and her family lived in a squalid refugee camp in the Democratic Republic of Congo without any toilets or water. But then they moved to a different camp: one that has brand-new toilets and showers because they were installed in a project that Toilet Twinning helped fund!

For years, Ruth wasn’t sure she could keep her family alive. ‘Now we can protect ourselves and our children from diseases,’ she says.

Lez Jones, President of Grantham Sunrise Rotary Club, says: ‘Toilet Twinning is one of the most worthy projects that we have supported to date.’

  • Do a squat relay with your group – how long can you keep going?
  • Challenge your workout friend to a squat-off – who will get the highest number?
