Toilet Twinning

If you watched Elizabeth’s story and want to help people get access to adequate sanitation, why not twin your toilet? Tearfund and Cord run a Toilet Twinning initiative to help some of the 2.6 billion people who don’t have a safe toilet.

For £60, you can twin your toilet at home, school or church with a latrine in Africa. You'll receive a framed certificate of your toilet's twin, containing a photo, the latrine's location and its GPS coordinates so you can look it up on Google Maps.

Tearfund and Cord will use the money raised to help households have their own loo; enjoy better health; go to school and work; and fund other projects to alleviate poverty around the world.

Since the launch of Toilet Twinning in 2009, more than 1,600 latrines have been built in Burundi – providing safe loos for nearly 10,000 people!
