World Toilet Day
About 2.5 million people in the world do not have access to a toilet. This leads to poor sanitation which causes disease and death. 1000 children died per day in 2013 due to diarrheal disease from poor sanitation. Attendance rates for girls in school decrease when there is not access to a clean and safe toilet. World Toilet Day promotes health, dignity and wellbeing for all through sustainable sanitation by calling on the global community to do more to address the sanitation crisis.
