As a society today, we speak only of our successes, putting taboos on our failures, by refusing to acknowledge that they happen out of pride and shame. But by refusing to look at these failures, we limit the capacity to change and develop ideas, which, with minor adjustments, may shift the functionality of the program and in doing so, change lives.
Toilets are one of the first steps towards better health and brighter futures. For us at DROP, water, sanitation, gender equality and education go hand in hand and we believe that this four pronged approach is the most effective way to reduce poverty in rural communities. It's never too late to change where we go!
