Most of us have never thought of a restroom as anything other than a toilet and some privacy. For billions of people around the world, the word restroom isn't in their vocabulary.
Sanitation is virtually non-existent for more than 2.5 billion people – 38% of the world’s population. People are forced to defecate in open places and rivers, often contaminating their drinking water source.
This devastating lack of sanitation perpetuates the endless cycle of waterborne disease, sickness and death. Lack of adequate sanitation is yet another inhibitor for the developing world, stripping people of their dignity and ability to lead productive lives.
