As a company, we pride ourselves on our ability to help others and place tremendous emphasis on environmental sustainability, community support, charitable fundraising and providing our talented team with an environment to flourish within.

With that aim in mind, this week we started an exciting partnership with the charitable organisation Toilet Twinning.

We will support two specific charity initiatives alternately for every candidate placement we make above certain invoice value. EllisKnight International will, therefore, sponsor a toilet twinning on behalf of our clients for placements made from August to October 2020 and February to April 2021.

We're enormously excited about our partnership with this fantastic charity!

 

What does Toilet Twinning do?

This is a campaign that raises funds to support Tearfund's water and sanitation work around the world. Specifically, it helps provide clean water, proper toilets and hygiene training to some of the world's poorest communities.

  • Alongside the certificate, you receive a photo and its GPS coordinates.
  • You can choose which country your toilet is twinned with.

 

Toilet Twinning COVID-19 response

Just before lockdown, on 20 March, we launched Tap Twinning to help fund our global Covid-19 response. For a £60 donation, you can currently 'twin your tap with a tippy tap overseas' and so help spread public health information, train communities in hand hygiene and improve their access to water and hygiene products such as soap.

 "Water and sanitation projects enable families to build a toilet, have access to clean water, and to learn about handwashing and other hygiene principles."

Why toilets matter – Toilet Twinning.

 

 What needs does Toilet Twinning address?

The exist because of stinking stats such as these:

  • 2 billion people still don't have a safe, clean toilet.
  • 785 million people don't have clean water close to home.
  • A child under five dies of disease linked to dirty water and poor sanitation every two minutes.
  • Diarrhoea kills more children in war zones than war itself.

(Sources: WHO, Unicef.)

 

Their impact:

Some 140,000 toilets have been twinned to date, which equates to about 840,000 people in 45 countries being given access to safe sanitation over the past ten years.

 

You can twin your toilet and taps too!
