Why Toilets?

cause

CHILDREN

1000 children died per day from diarrhoeal diseases due to poor sanitation in 2013. These deaths are preventable.

cause

Education/Girls

Clean and safe toilets help keep more girls in school and increase attendance rates. Far too many girls miss out on education just because of the lack of a clean and safe toilet.

cause

Open Defecation

The 2015 goal to halve the proportion of people living without sanitation is running 150 years behind schedule. 1 billion (15 % of the world population) still practice open defecation.
