Winning the war against unsafe sanitation and poor hygiene
Over half the world’s population are at risk of sickness and disease because they don’t have access to safe sanitation*
Cleaner Toilets, Brighter Futures
Around the world 443 million schooldays are lost each year because of unsafe sanitation and waterborne illnesses, limiting the potential of young minds.
Having a clean and safe school toilet means children don’t miss out on learning; their self-worth is boosted because they feel valued and respected; and vital grassroots change is sparked.
In 2017, Domestos launched their dedicated schools programme – Cleaner Toilets, Brighter Futures. The global programme empowers janitors, teachers, and the entire school to manage their toilet facilities in a more productive and more sustainable way. Working with local governments, NGOs and organisations, like GIZ, to help make school toilets clean and safe, alongside teaching children the importance of toilet hygiene. The programme inspires collaboration between janitors, teachers and children so that once their school toilets are clean and useable, they can be kept that way for the long term.
In schools where Cleaner Toilets, Brighter Futures has been implemented, children visit the toilets 25% more.
Our partnership with UNICEF
Domestos has been working together with UNICEF to tackle unsafe sanitation and improve hygiene.
Through our renewed partnership, we will continue to focus our efforts on marginalised communities in India, targeting the places and spaces that are most vulnerable to infection.
Together, we will be unstoppable in reaching Domestos’ new goal of helping 100 million people access clean and safe toilets by 2030.
The Domestos and UNICEF partnership is not just about building toilets, it’s about behaviour change and the development of sustainable, community-led approaches to sanitation and hygiene in schools, public places and homes.
The partnership works in hard-to-reach communities, like the rural village of Dibrugarh, Assam to deliver access to toilets to the local community for the first time and improve regional sanitation access.
