Across the world 1.7 billion people don't have access to a toilet. That's over 25 times the population of the UK forced to go into the bushes around their homes and villages. It is unhygienic, it contaminates water sources and it's dangerous - particularly for women.
Across the world 3 billion people (1 in 4 of all people) do not have access to basic handwashing facities and 785 million (1 in 10) have to walk long distances to get small amounts of dirty water.
People get sick and die. Each day 700 children under 5 years old die from diarrhoea due to unsafe water and poor hygiene.
How it works
It costs £60 to twin with a community toilet in the developing world. For every twinning the organisation or household receives a certificate to put on their toilet door.
The money is used by Tear Fund to work with local communities to educate and enable them to construct toilets in their villages. Working with people means that the toilet is more likely to be respected, used properly and maintained.
Nearly 1m people have had their lives transformed by access to safe sanitation. That's great, but there is a long way to go,
Our ambition is that in 2022 Baslow will become a toilet - twinned village and raise £4,500 to twin with 75 toilets
We are planning to work with societies, organisations and people in the village to achieve this by running tea parties, pop-up markets and social events.
We need your help. If you are interested please contact us on
