It is easy to take a toilet for granted – lock the door, do your business, flush when finished, and forget all about it. But for 2.3 billion people worldwide – almost one in three – such a normal part of daily life is out of reach. This report explores how the lack of decent toilets around the world prevents women and girls from fulfilling their potential.
This manual was developed by WaterAid Timor-Leste as a means to integrate gender inequality as a significant consideration in its water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programming at the community level. The Manual aims to foster and encourage change towards greater gender equality.
In May 2015 WaterAid launched its Global Strategy, which outlines how we're working towards the global aim of achieving universal access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene by 2030. Since its launch, our country programmes have been working hard to translate our Global Strategy into their own work. These strategies describe how programmes hope to make change in their respective countries and explain how they will help WaterAid deliver its Global Strategy.
