All this week we are in #Stockholm  for #WorldWaterWeek  - an event that brings together experts, non-profits, government ministers and private companies to help tackle the global water and sanitation challenge.

Find out what we're calling for and how we're making change happen here: bit.ly/stockholmwww 

What one thing would you do to improve life for people without access to clean water or a toilet?

In Mwamfuli, Zambia, Mody (left) had always loved gardening – but because of the lack of water, she could only dream of having her own vegetable patch.

Mody used to have to fetch water by bucket from the river. Now, thanks to the arrival of a new piped water system in her village, that dream has finally come true!

In fact, her garden is doing so well that she and her family can eat some of their vegetables and sell the rest to neighbours, raising more than enough money to pay their water bill.

“We drink, we wash, we bathe and we are growing vegetables,” she told us. "We started a garden because water is nearby and there is enough to support gardening.”

Mody and her husband Dimus can now show off their Chinese Cabbages with pride!

How is your vegetable patch doing this summer?

Today we handed in our #MakeItHappen petition to the UK Government, with 115,058 names on it. Wow!

We re-created a Victorian street-scene (before sewers were introduced to London) to remind MPs what life was like before sanitation and public health - and to demand the same for all people worldwide.

Extra, extra! Read all about it here: http://goo.gl/KV4P1O

The dust has settled at Worthy Farm for another year... so here are five things Glastonbury taught us about (festival) toilets! How was it for you?
Come rain or shine, there’s one thing everybody needs at a festival: somewhere to go to the loo. Here’s what we learned about those all-important toilets at Glastonbury 2015.

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.

In the summer of 2013 following an appeal that you so generously supported, we installed taps, toilets and showers in Tsimahavaobe School, Madagascar. 

Two years later, the amazing transformation that's taken place is clear for all to see!

We know that the Japanese love their loos, but this new museum exhibition about toilets is something else - we love it!

In one interactive exhibit, kids are encouraged to wear a poo-hat, climb a ladder and then slide into a huge flush toilet - we just hope there's nothing in the bowl...

It's great that kids are learning about the importance of good hygiene and safe sanitation at such a young age - something we actively encourage in our projects too.

1 in 3 people still don't have access to a decent toilet. 

Help bring safe toilets to everyone, everywhere by 2030. http://goo.gl/el6jrB
