  2. I thnk the sanblog s a great dea. WaterPartners Internatonal (www.water.org) s a non-proft workng to provde safe and sustanable water solutons, as well as santaton and hygene educaton n the developng world. On ther behalf, I wanted to post some addtonal nformaton about World Tolet Day:

    Every year, water and santaton-related dsease klls 1.8 mllon chldren – one chld every 15 seconds. World Tolet Day, Monday November 19, rases awareness of the more than two bllon people wthout access to basc santaton n the developng world.

    Wthout access to adequate facltes and hygene educaton, open spaces or bodes of water become the prmary tolet areas. Chldren are extremely susceptble to vruses and bactera, but ther rsk s easly and dramatcally reduced wth smple, low-cost tolets. WaterPartners works wth groups n South Asa, Afrca and Central Amerca to provde access to santaton and hygene educaton. Please check out http://www.water.org for more nformaton about how you can help!
