Toilet Twinning

2 November 2016

2.4 billion people don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. That’s more than a third of the people on the planet!

Toilet Twinning raises funds to enable people living in poor communities to have clean water and a basic toilet, and to learn about hygiene – a vital combination that helps end generational poverty.

When people learn about the link between open defecation and disease, and go on to build their own toilet as a result, their families begin to enjoy better health. Children are well enough to go to school. Parents are well enough to work their land and grow enough for their family to eat.

Toilet Twinning is a charity initiative that is passionate about extending the reach of the water and sanitation programmes of international Christian NGO Tearfund; who work in some of the poorest counties in the world.

Last year, Tearfund’s water and sanitation work benefited more than 1.2 million people – and more than half a million people benefited from pit latrines.

Since Toilet Twinning’s launch in 2010, we have twinned more than 50,000 toilets.

We currently have two voluntary opportunities with Toilet Twinning for a and an .
