Our highlights in 2013 came from all across the WaterAid world, including our newest member countries - Japan and Canada. Here are just 12: Our Chief Executive Barbara Frost addressed UN member states on the importance of water, sanitation and hygiene in the post-2015 framework, at the request of the Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon. The UN recognised World Toilet Day for the first time and WaterAid joined WSSCC and Unilever to launch We Can't Wait, a report focusing on women and sanitation and hygiene. Doing something good, while looking good! Aveda Canada's Earth Month Campaign raised over $590,000 for WaterAid. Tokyo schoolchildren said 'thank you' to their toilets for World Toilet Day. "We use toilets every day without thinking anything, but today we understand that toilets are really important for lives". In Australia we were at WOMAD festival to promote WaterAid's WASH away poverty campaign - calling on all sides of Parliament to prioritise water, sanitation and hygiene in Australia's aid programme, no matter who is in government. UK MP Lynne Featherstone saw our Undoing Inequity project in Uganda, enabling people with disabilities to access sanitation services. Our Governance and Transparency Fund programme came to an end after working for five years across 16 countries. Our WASHTech project led to a 'technology applicability framework to ensure different technology options are sustainable and can be scaled up. Alongside other organisations active at the South Asian Conference on Sanitation, we were delighted with the commitment to end open defecation in South Asia by 2023. Artists and celebrities in Sweden were saying "I love toa" (an informal word for toilet) and creating beautiful exhibitions of the humble WC. We were part of the global Keep your promises campaign, where over one million people asked world leaders to keep their WASH promises. This photo is from Nigeria. We supported the global Walk for water and sanitation with over 400,000 people taking to the streets to engage with their political representatives.
