'Make a Splash!' partnership improves access to sanitation and hygiene for underserved communities
Going to the toilet, washing our hands - these are daily routines that we easily take for granted. For most of us, sanitary facilities with clean water are a matter of course, but many across the globe are facing a different situation.
Two billion people lack basic sanitation, 673 million practice open defecation regularly and 40% of the world's population do not have access to handwashing facilities and soap at home.
In 2018, UNICEF and Lixil created a bold, new partnership called 'Make A Splash!' - UNICEF's first global shared-value cooperation in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH). It combines UNICEF's WASH sector leadership with Lixil's global expertise in toilet design and innovation to tackle the sanitation and hygiene crisis.
As part of Lixil's brand portfolio, Grohe - a brand often seen in away-from-home washrooms, is launching its 'Energy for Life' campaign as part of 'Make a Splash!', which is taking place until August 2021 in 13 countries across EMENA (Europe, Middle East and North Africa) to raise awareness and support partnership activities.
Grohe will donate 1€/£1 for every participating Grohe shower system or thermostat purchased to help provide a child with access to a toilet at home, or a school with bars of soap.
