WORLD TOILET DAY (WTD) is celebrated on the 19th of November of every year to celebrate our toilets and raise awareness of the 4.2 billion people living without access to good sanitation and to tackle the global sanitation crisis. World Toilet Day (WTD) is to inform, engage, and inspire people to take action towards achieving good sanitation. It’s a campaign working to meet Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG6) which is to “Ensure Availability And Sustainable Management Of Water And Sanitation for All” by the year 2030. World Toilet Day is being organized every year by the UN-Water and the theme for this year is “Sustainable Sanitation And Climate Change”.
It is expected that Ilado and Magbon community will now have access to drinkable water, which can be used, for toilet maintenance along with the donated toiletries. This will affect directly about 160 households we have already verified with each household having a minimum of ten(10) members in the community. In addition, there will be a change in behavior positively for good sanitation practices, proper care of the shoreline, the indiscriminate harvest of Sea turtles, and ultimately awareness of climate change.
WTD 2020, is a step forward in having access to clean water, addressing the issue of poor sanitation practises, climate change and good health for human and the environment because we are loosing our young champion to negative effect of open defecation, poor sanitation and waterborne disease.
