Smiling behind the counter of her water kiosk, Elida is transforming lives in her village.

Before water arrived in Tsarahonenana, Madagascar, the community used to dig a hole in the ground to collect water from a river, even though people used the nearby forest as a toilet. But by running a water kiosk that we’ve helped set up, Elida is providing her friends, family and neighbours with safe, clean water.

Across the tracks is a powerful new 10 minute film about toilets. Featuring incredible #GoPro and #drone footage from India, it follows the story of Radha Verma, from Uttar Pradesh. 

As the #CleanIndia campaign gets under way, with its ambitious target of a toilet for every household by 2019, Radha’s story shows that change is possible. Something as simple as a toilet really does transform lives...

Happy #WorldEnvironmentDay

As rainfall becomes more unpredictable in Burkina Faso, we're helping the community in Basbedo to manage their water supply, improving #watersecurity

We are teaching skills including borehole water level monitoring and recording rainfall so that the community can better plan their crops. 

We call it Water Resource Management, and it's having a real effect, especially in rural communities. Something to give a +1 to today!

Today it's International Children's Day. Where there is a lack of safe water and toilets, it is children who suffer most. Their health, well-being and education are all affected.

Mugiraneza from Rwanda goes to Juru Primary School. It's very large, with around 900 students aged 4 to 18, and about 50 to a class. The school is clean and well kept, with a separate toilet block which has its own tap and hygiene area for girls.

A large underground rainwater harvesting tank has been built. After filtering, the water is clean enough to drink.

Before the rainwater harvesting tank, the children had to collect water from the muddy Akagera river, which Mugiraneza has drawn. The river is dirty and dangerous – in the rainy season hippos and crocodiles are common. The school is at the top of a hill, so it was a long walk uphill after collecting water. 

Now Mugiraneza and his classmates no longer have to make that long walk for dirty water.

We were all children once, and all children should have clean water and proper toilets to help ensure a healthy start in life. 

For #InternationalChildrensDay, please +1 Mugiraneza's story!

Sewmehon is a member of the Water Committee that mobilised her community in Kuranza, Ethiopia, to help dig their new well earlier this year. Now she helps collect funds to maintain it. As you can see, kids like Amlaku, 5, love the new water point!
Sewmehon is helping ‪#‎MakeItHappen‬!

You can too - sign our petition calling for a world where everyone, everywhere has clean water and a safe toilet by 2030: http://goo.gl/29vnmI
