Did you know that 272 million school days linked to unsafe water and poor sanitation are lost every year? It’s our belief that a clean, safe school toilet should be a right, not a privilege. Yet so many schools either don’t have a toilet, else it’s faulty or simply too filthy to use. This is why we launched Cleaner Toilets, Brighter Futures.
Our initiative aims to get as many school toilets as possible – including those in South Africa – operational, then to ensure they’re kept safe and clean. We work alongside janitors, teachers and kids sharing the benefits of healthy hygiene habits. We also give practical advice on how to maintain toilets over the long term. This has already led to improved sanitation for thousands of children in areas most affected by poor sanitation.
