The Culture that is India: Walking, Talking Poo Edition (not the Onion)

Apparently, less than 15% of rural indian kids use a toilet for defecation. The rate for urban children is less than half. Among kids with a TOILET IN THEIR HOME the usage rate is less than 33%.

People, that’s a lot of poo. Somehow I don’t think this UNICEF campaign is gonna fix the problem, even though their website has poo-themed videos and games to play.

Hat tip to the Undercover Economist
