5 ways to take action on World Toilet Day

By Rotary Service and Engagement
Having access to a toilet is a basic human need and right,
 yet 4.5 billion people worldwide live without a safe toilet 
and 892 million people still practice open defecation.
* The United Nations shared the world is not on track to reach
: to ensure availability and sustainable management 
of sanitation and water for all by 2030.
T World Toilet Day, is about taking action and inspiring change.
 This year’s theme, When Nature Calls, is focusing on nature-based solutions 
to sanitation needs.
 According the UN, since billions of people don’t have access
 to toilets, human faeces are not being captured or treated 
– contaminating the water and soil that sustain human life. 
In order to address this global sanitation crisis, toilets
 and sanitation systems that work in harmony with ecosystems must be built.
Encourage your club and district to get involved
 by supporting a sanitation project:
1.    Organize a water, sanitation, or hygiene (WASH) project in your community.
for help conducting a community assessment to determine local WASH priorities.
2.    Read the Guide to WASH in Schools to learn about
 creating healthier communities while improving school enrollment
 and attendance by bringing sanitation and hygiene services to schools.
3.    Consider nature-based sanitation solutions (NBS),
 which harness the power of ecosystems to help treat human waste 
before it returns to the environment. Learn more.
4.    Share about projects you have already implemented

Find a project to support on Rotary Ideas.

Physics Fun Compilation

An English landlady was dating two of her tenants,
 both of them playwrights.
  She could not determine which of them to marry;
 so she decided to let fate decide. 
 So she baked five of her famous round, flat, wheat-cakes
 and put poison in one of them;
 deciding to marry the survivor.
However, the two playwrights twisted fate 
for her when they split the last one, 
the poisoned one, between them.
The police arrested her for
 “killing two bards with one scone.”
