New stretch target

Wow! We are so grateful to everyone who has shared and donated; with your support we've reached our target of £2,000! Thank you so much. 

We are now going to extend our target to £3,000 to allow us to expand our mapping and train nine young people in Nairobi. With £3,000 our young team will be able to map sanitation for 60,000 people.

Gather brings people and data together to solve the urban sanitation crisis. By 2020, we want to expand sanitation services for 15 million people in eight emerging cities across the world.

Why toilets? 
Toilets change everything. They keep girls in school, keep kids healthy, increase productivity and keep cities clean. Cities cannot thrive without sanitation, but today three billion people do not have access to proper sanitation in cities across the world. Toilets are being built but without proper data it’s impossible to know where they’re needed most.

That’s where we come in
Gather wants to transform the sanitation sector so that toilets are built where they are needed most. We are starting in Nairobi in Kenya. One of the key ways we are ensuring that toilets are built where they’re needed is by collecting data on sanitation in local communities. We train up young people to map toilets in their local areas, and then make this data useful for organisations building new toilets.

We want to raise £2,000 to allow us to train six young people so they can map toilets for 40,000 people where they live.
