Keep Your Promises
It’s time for decision makers to keep their promises
Today women across the world will spend over 200 million hours walking to collect water and more people have mobile phones that access to a toilet – as over 2.5 billion people do not have access to a functioning toilet.
Keep Your Promises is a global campaign calling on decision makers to change this. For years decision makers have made many different commitments to ensure that everyone has access to clean water and a functioning toilet. But commitments alone are not enough so we are calling on decision makers to act on the promises they have made.
Keep Your Promises is a coalition campaign – our partners are undertaking national and regional advocacy to ensure their governments take action to ensure everyone has access to water and sanitation. In South Asia, partners have launched the right to sanitation campaign and in Nigeria our partners are running a campaign to ensure everyone has access to clean, safe water in the state of Imo.
At a global level, we are advocating to ensure that the development framework which will replace the current Millennium Development Goals will contain a specific goal on water and sanitation.
