Flushing away poverty, one toilet at a time

A few weeks ago, our tutor group (JSC) made a presentation about World Toilet Day.

s

As a tutor group we talked about the importance of the day and how it helps to save and make better thousands of lives. The day focuses on SDG goal number 6, which stands for clean water and sanitation. World Toilet Day is always celebrated on November 19th.

The World Toilet Organization was founded in 2001, on the same date as it is celebrated annually by  Jack Sim, from Singapore.

World Toilet Day was made to increase public awareness of sanitation. We as a class discussed the cost and problems that surround modern sanitation. For example, installing one toilet in a family house costs from 200$ up to 1500$.

  We also discussed shocking statistics: over 4.5 billion people, for example, do not have access to a safe/clean toilet. In comparison, more people have access to working phones (4.78 billion people)! All these facts show how unsafe our world is, and how development and technology sometimes override basic human rights.

Everyone in this world deserves the right to safe and hygienic sanitation. Some might think it’s not a serious topic, but it’s in fact a fundamental human right.

If you are reading this and want to support the cause, please have a look at this worthwhile charity:
