The Regional project ( 2015-2018)“ Toilet Twinning” has been embraced by SI Barry & District. The Club wholeheartedly supports Toilet Twinning.org which funds the work of the international relief and development agency Tearfund to provide clean water, basic sanitation and hygiene education.
Since 2015 SI Barry & District has twinned with a school block in Chad and Sierra Leone, and individual toilets in Liberia and Guatemala.
To raise the £240 for each school block and £60 for individual toilets, members have filled Smartie tubes with twenty pence pieces. This simple but effective activity has enabled SI Barry to join with Toilet Twinning in helping to “ Flush away poverty”.
By supporting this project the Club is helping to address the issue identified by WHO/ Unicef of 2.4 billion people across the world don’t have somewhere safe to go to the toilet.
