BENEFITING: Toilet Hackers

Andrew Kriss

THE STORY:

Over the past few weeks, thanks to Hurricane Sandy, I have seen first hand how difficult life can be like for people who do not have access to clean water or even a toilet. New Yorkers are hardy people who will get through the weeks ahead. But for the 2.5 billion people who live every day without access to clean water or even a basic toilet, their road ahead is much different, particularly for children under five.

I've learned a ton about how diarrhea, a preventable and treatable disease for most people, kills a child every 20 seconds because they don't have access to basic sanitation or hygiene. That's crazy. It's even more insane that 1/3 of girls in sub-Saharan Africa will drop out of school because they don't have a safe toilet to use at school when they hit puberty.

Most of the victims of poor sanitation are kids under the age of five in Africa. Reaching that fifth birthday is a major milestone and we can help make sure they do.

When I think about kids' birthday gifts, I usually think about bikes and Transformers and pogo sticks. But together, we can give a far more important gift: the gift of growing up.

I've met with some amazing people who are fighting to reach the goal of sanitation for all and am giving my time and skills to help us reach this goal. But I can't do this alone. I've teamed up with Toilet Hackers, a team of Giving Water, and the International Medical Corps, to help me build latrines for school children in Samburu, Kenya.

Please click to DONATE or JOIN THE TEAM to help support our efforts to end diarrhea deaths in Africa and make sure kids stay in school. Let's give more kids the gift of growing up.
