We work to alleviate poverty by building life-saving eco-toilets
Unbelievably, 2.6 billion people don’t have access to a toilet. Without toilets sewage pollutes drinking water spreading illness and disease. Those most affected are among the world’s poorest, often sick, unable to work or attend school, remaining trapped in a cycle of poverty.
A child dies every 17 seconds from a sanitation-related illness –
we’re working hard to change that
Here at Wherever the Need we develop and build life-saving eco-toilets.
Since being established in 1997, we have changed the lives of over 50,000 people in India, Sierra Leone and Kenya. The simple act of building a toilet reduces pollution, disease and sickness, it creates healthy communities, promotes self-respect and dignity, and underpins education and livelihoods.
