Today, we join the rest of the world to mark the World Toilet Day. World Toilet Day is an official United Nations international observance day on 19 November to inspire action to tackle the global sanitation crisis. Worldwide, 4.2 billion people live without “safely managed sanitation” and around 673 million people practice open defecation.
To achieve this, we have built 204 modern toilets in conjunction with the Water Sector Trust Fund in Witemere low income area of Nyeri town in a bid to improve sanitation for the urban poor. The toilets were built under the Upscaling Basic Sanitation for the Urban Poor (UBSUP) project.
