Herinavalona at his school where WaterAid installed sanitation facilities

You may not realise it but... toilets save lives! Right now, one in three children does not have access to a basic toilet. As a result, ten million under-fives have tragically lost their lives since 2000. 

Loos aren't just life-saving either; spending on sanitation facilities like toilets has huge economic benefits – for every £1 invested in sanitation and water, there's a return of around £4. Health is improved, fewer days are lost to sickness, and children, like Herinavalona aged 12 from Madagascar, stay on at school longer.
