As part of the Toilets Change Lives campaign, Kimberly-Clark, its toilet tissue brand Andrex® and WaterAid are working together to improve public toilet facilities in Bangladesh.

Our partnership

Ending extreme poverty and creating a healthier, more prosperous future cannot be done without clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

That's why WaterAid is working with Andrex® and Kimberly-Clark Professional* to provide new and improved public toilets in one of the world’s fastest-growing cities: Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The project will help improve sanitation facilities and raise awareness of good hygiene practices in local communities across Dhaka. And will mean people can make 100,000 visits to clean, decent public toilets within the first 12 months of the programme.

Here in the UK, Andrex® and Kimberly-Clark Professional* have committed to a minimum donation of £100,000 to WaterAid in 2017, contributing one pence for every pound spent on special WaterAid packs of Andrex® Gentle Clean 4 Roll, 9 Roll and 16 Roll in Tesco stores nationwide.

 

The partnership in reality

In a pop-up event in 2017, WaterAid and Andrex® gave supermarket shoppers in England the chance to visit busy streets in Bangladesh, and experience what it feels like when there’s no toilet, by interacting with this 360° video. 

The partnership in practice

One of the most difficult parts of our daily life is using the public toilet.
Adequate toilet facilities would not only save our community but the city too. It is a basic human need.
