2.5 billion people worldwide lack access to improved sanitation. 1 billion still practice open defecation. When poop mixes with drinking water supplies and people drink or bath in that water they get sick – leading to the death of one child under 5 years old every minute from preventable diseases like cholera and severe diarrhea.
We’re dedicated to bringing sanitation solutions that last to the developing world, particularly to flood-prone communities. By partnering with in-country NGOs, we ensure our solutions are technologically appropriate, take local toilet preferences into account, are resilient, effective, elegant, and affordable.
