One child dies every 20 seconds due to lack of sanitation, unclean water and poor hygiene.
One tenth of the world's illnesses are caused by poor sanitation, bad hygiene and unsafe water.
Inadequate sanitation costs countries considerable economic losses, in some cases up to 7.2% of a county’s GDP.
1 out of every 3 girls in Sub-Saharan Africa drops out of school once they start menstruating due to the lack of access to toilets at schools.
