We all take our toilets, having clean water on tap, along with the associated hygiene for granted. For one third of the 7 billion people across the globe this is not the case.
Toilet twinning is a scheme whereby people can, for a £60 donation, twin their toilet with one in a poor community anywhere in the world to enable them to build a basic toilet, have access to clean water and learn about hygiene.
Not just individuals can twin toilets; schools, workplaces, youth groups in fact anyone can take part in this scheme. If you do this you are given a certificate with a picture of your twinned loo and the latitude and longitude and the knowledge you are helping to improve the lives of those less fortunate.
