World Toilet Organization (WTO) is a global non-profit organization committed to improving toilet and sanitation conditions worldwide. WTO is also one of the few organizations to focus on toilets instead of water, which receives more attention and resources under the common subject of sanitation.
The lack of adequate sanitation facilities account for much of the world’s social and health problems. WTO’s vision is to attain clean, safe, affordable, ecologically sound, and sustainable sanitation for everyone. Sanitation brings benefits of health and dignity to humanity especially to the slums, and rural areas. Promotion of ecological sanitation through recycling of excreta helps prevent environmental pollution into water ways.
Launched in Singapore, it now has 235 member organizations in 58 countries working towards eliminating the toilet taboo and delivering sustainable sanitation. WTO was created as a global network and service platform wherein all sanitation organizations can learn from one another and leverage on media and global support that in turn can influence governments to promote sound sanitation and public health policies.
