Domestos Tackles the Toilet Sanitation Crisis

How do you teach a child about personal hygiene if they don’t have access to clean ablution facilities?

The lack of adequate toilet facilities in South African schools is one of the country’s largest health issues. Did you know that 35% of the world's population has no access to basic sanitation? Poor sanitation causes diseases and, in particular, diarrhoea - which kills one child every two minutes.

This is no doubt a violation against learners’ rights to human dignity – something while Domestos has taken to heart with the help of our multipurpose bleach and cleaning guides.
They have embarked on a number of projects around the country, and been making great strides in transforming school sanitation and recently handed over newly renovated toilet facilities in Umlazi, Durban.

Toilet & Sanitation Facts:

Did you know:

- An estimated 2.5 billion people do not have access to a clean and safe toilet, of which 1 billion still have to defecate in the open, putting everyone’s health at risk?

- Around 500,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation - that's over 1,400 children a day?

- 443 million school days are lost every year due to a lack of access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene? And girls are missing out on an education because their schools lack clean, safe toilets.

And, what's more, of the UN’s eight Millennium Development Goals to be realised by 2015, sanitation is the most off target. Why? Maybe because although we're lucky enough to use toilets, we're not talking about them. It's time to break the silence and get us all focused on making clean, safe toilets a reality for all.
