Rotary & Inner Wheel learned that there was a UK based water and sanitation charity that works to improve the lives of people across Africa and Asia.

 An extremely popular charity, with a fiercely loyal supporter base, they've seen huge growth since starting in 2010.

Both Clubs wished to support the work being done

It seems hard to believe today that some 2.3 billion people have no access to sanitation.

Toilet Twinning is an initiative which invites people to "twin" their own toilet with latrines in poor communities (an analogy with the twin towns and sister cities movement). This is a way of raising funds to enable people in the poorest nations and in desperate poverty to have clean water and a proper toilet, and to learn about hygiene. a vital combination that saves lives.
