We've twinned our toilets!
As a bit of a charitable donation, affinity has twinned it’s two loos and we are now the proud owners of 2 certificates - proudly displayed in each loo.
What’s it about?
Toilet Twinning provides people in the poorest communities on the planet with a decent toilet, clean water and all the information they need to stay healthy. It’s the key to helping whole communities break free of the poverty trap.
How does it work?
You twin your loo with a latrine halfway around the world, in a country of our choosing (in our case Pakistan and Bangladesh). Our 2 loos become the proud owner of a personalised certificate, complete with a colour photo of its twin and GPS coordinates so you can look up our twin on Google Maps.
Our donation is used by Tearfund to provide clean water, basic sanitation, and hygiene education. This vital combination works together to prevent the spread of disease. Children are healthier, and able to go to school; parents are well enough to work their land and grow enough food to feed their family. With better health, and more ability to earn a living, men and women discover the potential that lies within them to bring transformation.
You can find out more here - you may even want to twin your loo at home!
