Dear friends of x-runner,

With a lot of excitement and enthusiasm we share with you our new website!
We made it with lots of dedication, thinking of you and with the goal of better informing everyone about what we do. Our website was developed to communicate in a clear, simple and easy way how x-runner is changing the problem of sanitation in the human settlements of Lima, Peru. 

Above all, it shows the magnitude of the social and environmental impact on families and communities; and how this makes us unique. You will be able to see all the media coverage about us, our achievements, as well as have direct access to our blog.

For those who wish to support us with volunteer work or donations, we are happy to announce that you can now do so directly at:

We hope you enjoy our new website as much as we do, and it would be wonderful if you could support us by sharing this message among all your friends and contacts!

Your x-runner team

“My name is Clemencia Zuñiga and I have had my Family's (x-runner's Peruvian brand) toilet for three years now. Before having the dry toilet, my life was quite different: I used to have a pit latrine and it was very uncomfortable, it caused many problems because it attracted cockroaches, flies and bad odours. Another problem was that it filled up very quickly, and since we could not make a deeper hole because of the rocks, we had to make another hole in the ground every few years. Since I have had Family's my life has changed, everything is cleaner and more hygienic. I am very happy, because now my daughters and I feel like we have a normal life, and I don't worry about accidents anymore, like my kids falling into the pit latrine. I can finally invite visitors to my home because we no longer have flies or cockroaches, now our home is clean and smell-free. I recommend Family's to everyone, especially due to its effect on your home’s hygiene and more importantly because it does not use water."

"All my life I have worked as a cleaning maid in homes. I began working at x-runner in 2013, helping with the bucket washing and cleaning the treatment plant. In October of last year I was officially hired to take care of the waste pick-up service and to be in charge of customer service. My first challenge at my new job was to solve problems and complaints from customers: I was afraid of not being able to answer correctly or, worse, of not knowing the answer. However, experiencing face to face the happiness of our customers and seeing that we really improve their lives helped me overcome my fears.

When x-runner was still in its early stages and just about to wrap up its first pilot with 40 families in Lima, AVINA Stiftung in Switzerland was the first Foundation to believe in our vision of waterless sanitation and to support us with a grant to finance our expansion. Therefore, we are especially excited to announce that AVINA will support x-runner for a second time.
