YOU HAVE A TOILET. 2.5 BILLION PEOPLE DO NOT.

 

MISSION: Do Epic Sh*t!

BENEFITING: Toilet Hackers

THE STORY: Today, nearly 40% of the world (2.5 billion people) lack access to basic sanitation. As a result:

  • One child dies every 20 seconds due to lack of sanitation, unclean water and poor hygiene.
  • One tenth of the world's illnesses are caused by poor sanitation, bad hygiene and unsafe water.
  • Inadequate sanitation costs countries considerable economic losses, in some cases up to 7.2% of a county’s GDP.
  • 1 out of every 3 girls in Sub-Saharan Africa drops out of school once they start menstruating due to the lack of access to toilets at schools.

Toilet Hackers is partnering with leading experts and organizations in the sanitation sector to implement effective, sustainable and scalable models of toilet and sanitation development and hygiene education. Toilet Hackers supports the work of its implementing partners by raising awareness and funds that go directly to toilet and sanitation development, improving the health and living standards for the urban and rural poor. 

MORE GOOD SH*T: Hear from co-founder Michael Lindenmayer and join us in the fight against poop!
