Youth Groups

Youth groups are doing some amazing things to fight injustice: with Toilet Twinning – and also with our brand-new campaigns Fridge Twinning and Bin Twinning.

Over the last year, Toilet Twinning has launched Bin Twinning and Fridge Twinning because we need to help people living in poverty who are facing extreme hunger and the impact of the global climate crisis.

Your youth group can help transform lives, one twin at a time!

Toilet Twinning 

By getting involved with Toilet Twinning, your group can help people in the world’s poorest countries to have clean water, a decent toilet, and to learn about hygiene: a vital combination that saves lives every day.

Could you twin the toilets where you meet – for World Toilet Day on November 19? Check out the resources opposite.

Fridge Twinning 

More than 40 million people are facing extreme hunger right now because of Covid. Lockdowns and restrictions have left millions without work and unable to feed their families.

With countries on the brink of famine, Fridge Twinning is an emergency appeal to provide food, cash vouchers and livelihoods support.

Could you raise money for this urgent appeal? Take a look at the Fridge Twinning resources opposite.

Bin Twinning 

In November, the UK will host the UN climate summit, COP26, where it’s hoped world leaders will commit to urgent action to tackle the climate emergency.

Waste is a big contributor to  the climate crisis: 5% of global emissions come from the way we dispose of our waste through landfill, incineration, illegal burning and so forth.

This is damaging our planet but it’s a justice issue too. In the world’s poorest countries, a person dies every 30 seconds from diseases caused by plastic pollution and rubbish.

Toilet Twinning has launched Bin Twinning to raise funds for brand-new social enterprises that are being set up to collect waste, dispose of it safely and recycle as much as possible.

Bin Twinning has three strands: saving lives, protecting the planet and creating jobs.

St Devenick’s young people

Young people at St Devenick’s Episcopal Church in Aberdeen took on a sponsored bike ride, a movie night and an outdoor sleepover under cardboard boxes, and invited along a few friends. They far-exceeded their target, raising £840 – enough to twin 14 household latrines.
