One in three people do not have access to a clean and safe toilet. Kimberly-Clark believes that access to sanitation is an essential for a better life. Through our flagship program, Toilets Change Lives we are working with partners like UNICEF, WaterAid and Water for People to teach people and communities about safe hygiene practices.

We believe in the importance of championing a women's progress and are working to remove obstacles that women and girls face in managing their period.
