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.
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.
The silence surrounding the sanitation crisis is beginning to break as evidenced by the Sustainable Development Goal's inclusion of sanitation on its global development agenda. Sustainable Development Goal #6 calls for universal access to adequate and equitable sanitation and the end of open defecation by 2030.
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.
