Can you imagine what life would have been like growing up without clean water or a decent toilet?

Think of the time you would spend collecting water instead of learning, making and playing. The lessons you’d miss at school because you were sick. What would it have been like to live without the privacy of a toilet?

That's normal life for children in Mirchaiya, Nepal, where the local school has no water. When students need the toilet, they go to the fields, where they report being scared of snakes and scorpions.

Together we can make clean water and decent toilets normal for children everywhere.
