We began working in Darjeeling in 2010 and extended the work to Assam in 2017. In both regions, we work with producers, local experts and communities to build suitable, safe, hygienic and sustainable sanitary latrines. Twinings employees also contributed through fundraising efforts to provide even more toilet units.
Alongside infrastructure development, we work with communities to raise awareness of health and hygiene practices, from handwashing to menstrual hygiene. We use a range of channels to spread the message, including radio programmes, school lessons, and Adolescent Girls’ and Mothers’ Clubs.
