Domex launches toilet academy

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Domex, toilet cleaner brand of Hindustan Unilever Lever (HUL), has launched Domex Toilet Academy to mark the occasion of World Toilet Day which is celebrated globally on November 19 every year.

The academy aims to build 24,000 toilets by 2015 in areas faced with the problem of open defecation and where people do not have access to improved sanitation.

The academy’s ambition is to help eradicate open defecation and thus achieve 100 per cent access to improved sanitation and educate people about the importance of safe and hygienic sanitation practices.

Hemant Bakshi, Executive Director-Home & Personal Care, HUL, said: “We believe that we have an important role to play to help make our communities open defecation free. This initiative is part of Domex’s mission to reduce diarrhoea deaths in children under the age of 5 by eradicating open defecation in India.”
