– grassroots influencing on water and sanitation

Interesting infographic on the lack of sanitation around the world


Take a look at this fun and informative graphic on Sanitation. Created to support the Water, Sanitation & Hygiene program of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which challenged 22 universities to submit proposals for how to invent a waterless, hygienic toilet that is safe and affordable for people in the developing world and doesn’t have to be connected to a sewer. Eight universities were awarded grants to “reinvent the toilet.”

The Water, Sanitation & Hygiene program initiated the Reinvent the Toilet Challenge to leverage advances in science and technology and create a new toilet that will transform waste into energy, clean water, and nutrients.
