2.3 billion people don't have access to an adequate bathroom, that's one in three of the world's population
Without access to toilet facilities, infection and often deadly disease is easily spread through contaminated water sources.
377 people die every hour from diseases linked to poor sanitation, hygiene and contaminated water.
289,000 children under 5 die each year due to diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That’s 800 a day!
Many women and children in the developing world spend hours each day walking miles to collect water from dirty or unsafe pools and rivers.
In urban areas they collect it from polluted waterways or pay high prices to buy it from vendors.
Hygiene education programs are designed in collaboration with the community.
Good hygiene, like regular hand washing, ensures that the benefits of new clean water and sanitation facilities are fully realized,
All WaterAid projects support the construction of communal or household level toilet facilities in rural communities, urban slums and primary schools.
Improved sanitation facilities help keep human waste away from water sources and other human contact,
WaterAid’s bottom-up collaborative approach to hygiene promotion makes it more likely that community members will listen to and accept suggested behavioural changes.
Community Health Committees are created at each project to ensure hygiene practices are sustainable.
