    I some what agree with on how building too many toilets without proper infrastructure has created a mess in many places, but i don't think you can stop building toilets where people have none at all, or not recommend better more eco-friendly toilets with bio tech. Here in Nepal, proper sanitation prevents early death, so doing something is better than waiting for foundations to find there way to the Himalayas and install sensible sanitation. Well, congrats on doing things and raising awareness!

    Why We Give a Shit about Toilets via magazine.good.is

    Love the advertising & design here, but not sure what more there is to this, other than donating to another NGO working on the problem. I live in Nepal, where it's true, more peeps have phones than toilets. But these phones are not the kind you would ever see a webpage on (old, non-smart, feature phones). There is also a city full of I/NGOs (Kathmandu) working on problems: clean water, toilets, hand-washing, etc. and some even train women how to repair cellphones, but I can walk outside the city into the hills and find folks defecating into open waterways. Heck, I can just look outside my window in the middle of the city and see that. So I have to ask, how will another website, another campaign, another organization fix the problem? According to hundreds of reports generated by dozens of organizations, 45,000 children die each year in Nepal from diarrhea. Is it true? I don't know, I just edit the reports as a professional editor, putting the comma in the right place or rewording the sentence so it makes sense. But it seems that instead of writing reports, proposals, and assessments, we should be out in the field fixing the problem. So what is the real story? With over two decades of aid from every developed country on earth, how come that many children are reported dying each year? I don't have an answer... I wish I did.
