NiE Flushing it Away

MOST of us take the toilet for granted but in many parts of the world a loo is a luxury. A toilet is a sanitation fixture used primarily for the disposal of human excrement and urine but around 40% of the world's population do not have access to toilets or improved sanitation.

That's two and a half billion people that have inadequate access to basic sanitation. Many of these people have no choice but to defecate in the open. This means they go in fields, on the side of roads, in rivers, directly into open sewers, in rubbish dumps or anywhere they can find a little bit of privacy.
