Our Company Charity
2.5 billion people – that’s 40% of the world’s population – don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. The human impact of this scandalous stat is enormous: nearly one in five child deaths each year is due to diarrhea. The good news is you can help change this by twinning your toilet!
For people in poor communities, a hole in the ground is quite literally a life saver – protecting women from the risk of attack as they find somewhere private to squat, and shielding children from preventable diarrhoeal diseases. By twinning a toilet you’ll be helping those who most need it access safe sanitation, clean water and hygiene education.
What is toilet twinning?
Toilet Twinning is raising funds for founder charities Cord and Tearfund, to enable people living in poor communities to have clean water, a decent toilet, and to learn about hygiene – a vital combination that prevents the spread of disease, reduces the number of deaths among children, and brings hope for the future.
For a £60 donation, you can twin your toilet at home, work, school or church with a latrine in 11 different countries. The choice is yours. When you twin your toilet you’ll receive a certificate of your toilet’s twin, containing a photo, the latrine’s location and its GPS coordinates so you can look it up on Google Maps!

Double your efforts with Stillwater Associates
Stillwater Associates have chosen toilet twinning as their company charity and would like to encourage all its clients to twin their toilets by offering to match every toilet twinning donation made by a client with a similar amount. Therefore if you twin a toilet and let us know we will twin another toilet as well. If you twin four toilets so will we! It’s all down to you.
Stillwater Associates have already twinned their office toilets in Redhill with a toilet block in Chad. You can check it out on Google maps here!
