Food and water which has been contaminated with human excrement currently accounts for the death one child every 20 seconds — more than AIDS and malaria combined.
Community Channel broadcast The Last Taboo on 19 November — World Toilet Day — to reveal the health problems being caused by a lack of sewers and adequate sanitation facilities throughout Africa.
Solent Skillset Media Academy head Tony Steyger teamed up with fellow professionals to mentor UK and Kenyan students in order to produce this bold documentary.
The Last Taboo seeks to use humour and sincerity to tell the stories of two Kenyan men, leading the way in improving conditions for local people — quite a tall order when more than 14 million Kenyans are still using the bush rather than the bathroom. More details: http://worldview.cba.org.uk/
