Toilet Twinning

Driffield Methodist Church is a keen supporter of this Charity. If you would like to see what they do, and therefore how we support them, please click on the aim below:

Simple loos are lifesavers in the communities we work with. In fact, as these people will tell you, toilets are much more than that… 

And here is a note of thanks from them:

                    

Happy Christmas!

I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am for your support this year. We’ve been able to provide life-changing latrines to a record number of people across the globe in 2015 — and it’s all thanks to amazing toilet twinners like you.
You’ve transformed life for so many people – like 15-year-old Barbara, pictured here with her Grandmother and cousin.

Barbara was orphaned as a baby. She lives with her granny and young cousin. Pressure to drop out of school is immense for someone like Barbara who is needed around the home.

Girls like her in this part of south-west Uganda normally marry young. Too young.

Uganda has one of the highest school drop-out rates in the world.

But for Barbara, the future is starting to look very different. Thanks to our partner, she has a safe, hygienic toilet at her home and a new toilet block at school.


Now that Barbara has proper toilets at school, she has the incentive she needs to keep on studying. And, now she has a toilet at home, she misses far fewer lessons due to ill-health.

This year, Toilet Twinning has been able to support thousands of families like Barbara’s in some of the poorest places on the planet.
We’re on a mission to save lives: thank you again for being part of it.
 
I wish you and yours a 
stinking stonking Christmas and a Happy New Year!

If you’d like to encourage friends and family to twin their loo this Christmas, one simple thing you could do is share our brand-new animation with them: https://goo.gl/SnCfyj

Sharing it on social media will help spread the love even further (hint, wink, nudge).
