  • No Toilet, No Wife

    The moral of a play that health workers are performing in villages in Nepal is that He who does not have a toilet will not get a wife. Health workers promote hygiene for everyone. But men are likely to miss the message because many go to India to work for 6 months out of the year. Using theatre is a great idea. The village shows lure most villagers, including the men. When the men are home, they get the hygiene message. The women must be happier! (Photo courtesy of the International Water and Sanitation Centre.)

    I don't know of many women in the US who would date a guy who didn't have and use a toilet. Would you? For more information about this and similar programs see the International Water and Sanitation Centre.
