Flushing away poverty

I’m sure you’ve heard of town twinning – Guildford has been twinned with Freiburg in Germany since 1979. But now anyone can ‘twin’ their toilet too. The idea is that when you twin your toilet you donate £60 to enable families in a poor community to build a basic toilet, have access to clean water and learn about hygiene – a vital combination that saves lives.

 

So we have twinned our two toilets at All Saints’, in Ockham and St Michael’s Chapel in Downside, and if you visit either loo you will find a framed certificate showing a photo of the overseas toilet twin, together with the location, which you can look up using an online map. And you will even find the GPS coordinates!

 

 

All Saints toilet twin

Our toilet at All Saints’ is twinned with one in Bangui District, Central African Republic (Latitude: 3.8962, Longitude: 17.9191) and our toilet in St Michael’s Chapel is twinned with one in Buliba, North Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo  (Latitude: -0.22525, Longitude: 29.21553).

 

If you want to see the precise location you will need to put the GPS coordinates above into a degrees/minutes/seconds converter such as www.latlong.net/lat-long-dms.html. This includes a map so is very easy to use.

 

Happy searching!
