Toilets Change Lives

1 in 4 people globally don’t have a decent toilet to use at home.

14.1 million people in South Africa do not have access to safe sanitation.

80% of schools in Limpopo still use basic pit toilets which are unhygienic and unsafe.

16.4% of households in rural communities have no water to wash their hands after using the toilet

Why Toilets Change Lives

Without clean water and decent toilets, people can’t stay healthy. Children frequently miss school and parents become too ill to work. Together, Baby Soft® and WaterAid are making a bigger and lasting difference to people’s lives. The Toilets Change Lives initiative is transforming the lives of thousands of people by constructing new or renovating existing toilets at schools in South Africa.

Know the FAQs

A staggering 2 billion people – 1 in 4 – still don’t have a decent toilet of their own. Baby Soft® and WaterAid believe these basic human rights should be normal for everyone, everywhere, which is why our joint initiative, Toilets Change Lives, aims to improve school toilets to increase dignity and public health for communities here in South Africa. Baby Soft® and WaterAid are working together to change the lives of South African children and families through clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

785 million people don’t have access to clean water close to home, that’s 1 in 10 around the world. Without clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene, people can’t stay healthy. Children are frequently sick and miss school, and parents are too ill, or busy caring for their families, to work. People living without these basic human needs do not have an equal chance to be healthy, educated and financially secure.

Baby Soft® and WaterAid are committed to making a positive change for communities around the world which need the most support. The Toilets Change Lives initiative has already helped transform thousands of lives by constructing toilet facilities at schools in Limpopo province. With your support, Baby Soft® and WaterAid can help to build even more toilets at schools in South Africa.
