Not only do toilets improve hygiene, they provide safety, dignity and better health outcomes for everyone. Whether a school toilet block or a household latrine, this gift helps lead to healthier, empowered communities.

How your gift helps

‘Remember to wash your hands after going to the toilet!’ These words are painted clearly on the outside of this primary school toilet block, built with the help of Tearfund’s Christian partner Reformed Open Community Schools in eastern Zambia. Students now have clean toilets to use, as well as the knowledge to keep themselves healthy through hand washing and sanitation education. Not only do latrines lead to better health, but they improve school attendance, especially for girls, as students have a safe and dignified place to go to the toilet.
