Fighting poor sanitation side-by-side through partnerships.
In 2018, Domestos gathered stakeholders from government, private enterprise, NGO’s and media to commemorate World Toilet Day at a first-of-its-kind sanitation event: Flush Forum South Africa. The Flush Forum was aimed at heeding the President’s call for collective action to help solve the country’s sanitation crisis in schools.
With school sanitation being a top priority for the South African government, World Toilet Day presented the perfect opportunity to bring together stakeholders from all spheres of South African society for panel discussions, addresses and workshops, to pool knowledge and resources, aiming to deliver holistic and sustainable solutions that would ultimately improve the lives of South Africa’s school children.
An estimated 4.5 billion people in the world are living without proper sanitation and shockingly, 892 million people still practise open defecation. Established by the UN in 2012, encourages people across the globe to support actions that will ensure all people have access to a safe, hygienic toilet by 2030.
