Why Toilets?

A world body on toilets — are you kidding me? Your toilet is more important than you think. Let’s take a look at some quick facts about the sanitation crisis.

CHILDREN

Around 700,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation — that’s almost 2,000 children a day. These deaths are preventable.

EDUCATION/GIRLS

Clean and safe toilets help keep more girls in school and increase attendance rates. Far too many girls miss out on education just because of the lack of a clean and safe toilet.

OPEN DEFECATION

The 2015 goal to halve the proportion of people living without sanitation is running 150 years behind schedule. 1 billion (15 % of the world population) still practice open defecation.

INVESTMENT

Every $1 spent on water and sanitation generates returns of $8 in saved time, increased productivity and reduced health costs.

Health, dignity and well-being for all through sustainable sanitation

A clean and safe toilet ensures health, dignity and well-being — yet 40% of the world’s population does not have access to toilets. World Toilet Organization is a global non-profit committed to improving toilet and sanitation conditions worldwide. We believe in empowering individuals through education, training and building local marketplace opportunities to advocate for clean and safe sanitation facilities in their communities.

What We Do

The 2015 Millennium Development Goal target on sanitation remains the most off-track of all the MDG goals. The reason: The silence surrounding the sanitation crisis.

World Toilet Organization is one of the few organizations whose sole focus is on toilets
and sanitation. Breaking the silence on the sanitation crisis is at the heart of what we do.
And here’s how we do it.
