Leader Resource 1: Turdlywinks Game Board

There's a toilet at the top of the page, surrounded by expanding circles associated with scores.

How to play: From outside the board try to flick your turdlywink into the latrine. If you miss you'll make a mess.

The circle closest to the toilet is labelled 'WaterAid's vision: 100% sanitation coverage.' The next circle is labeled: 'Ghana: 58% sanitation coverage.' Then: 'Uganda: 41% sanitation coverage.' Then: 'Ethiopia: 6% sanitation coverage.'

Facts in 'turdly splats' are scattered around the board: A child dies every 15 seconds from water-related diseases. One gram of faeces can contain 10,000,000 viruses, 1,000,000 bacteria and 100 parasite eggs. Diseases caused by lack of sanitation keep children out of school. 1.1 billion people live without clean drinking water. 2.6 billion people live without toilets. Washing hands with soap and water can reduce diarrhoeal diseases by over 40%.

The game board is labelled ' WaterAid's campaigns aim to influence governments and public opinion to ensure water and toilets for all.'
