Presently there are still about 1 billion people around the world who are forced to practice open defecation because of lack of access to a functioning toilet. And, there are many more millions who prefer not to use a toilet even when they have one. The behaviour of the latter group can only be changed when they are persuaded to use toilets. Changing personal preferences requires raising awareness about the risks associated with open defecation and the benefits of using well designed toilets. Therefore, to promote household investment in sanitation and trigger behavioural change towards toilet usage, FIN trust has created an education package in the form of fun educational material for a 60-75 minutes interactive workshop.
The objective of our initiative is to educate and emote the world to leave “NO ONE BEHIND” in terms of access to sanitation. So FIN CALLED OUT TO THE WORLD TO USE AND IMPLEMENT THE QUIZ AND DISCUSSION MATERIAL to celebrate World Toilet Day. Amazingly, many social entrepreneurs and institutions responded to FIN’s call to participate in the event.
