Notes to Editors:
About Toilet Twinning: Toilet Twinning was set up in 2010 to help tackle the global water and sanitation crisis. 2.3 billion people don’t have somewhere safe and hygienic to go to the toilet... and we think that stinks.
Toilet Twinning works through local community-based partners. Our approach focuses on enabling and equipping people to find their own solutions to the issues that keep them trapped in poverty. So, while our partners provide training and materials, it is generally the families themselves who do the hard work and build their own latrines. That gives them ‘ownership’ of their toilet and means they will keep on using it.
When families work together to install water pumps, build toilets, and learn about basic hygiene, the health of the whole community improves: parents can work in their fields and grow crops; children are able to go to school and get an education. Having a toilet enables families to take a first big step out of generational poverty. ww.toilettwinning.org
