  • Water and sanitation at school
    In Bangladesh 74.8 million people lack access to improved sanitation and almost 28 million lack access to safe water. We are pleased to share this photo from a high school in Gazipur where Water.org is working with partner organization Village Education Resource Center (VERC). Together we are conducting a community-led total sanitation and safe water improvement program. As a result of this project, students can attend school with confidence knowing a private latrine and access to safe water are nearby.
  • Flipping the statistics
    Sixty-four percent of the world's population have access to a toilet. In Uganda the proportion who do not have a toilet is the reverse - 23.3 million have no place to go. This is more than half the population living without access to what many take for granted. Not having a toilet nearby leads to open defecation, poor health, and safety concerns. These men stand by their recently constructed toilets which are available to five households. Together, the five families constructed the facilities through Water.org. Now these men, their wives, and their children have the opportunity to experience a life not burdened by the issues millions face without a toilet. With each sanitation project like this, Water.org is working to flip the statistics in Uganda, and around the world.
