The World Toilet Organization (WTO) is the leading global voice for sanitation – a non-profit working towards a world with clean, safe toilets and sanitation for everyone, everywhere, at all times. The charity was founded by Jack Sim in Singapore on the 19th November 2001.
Since its inception, WTO has brought together key players from governments, academia, civil society, multilateral agencies and the private sector to explore innovative and sustainable solutions to end the global sanitation crisis.
WTO has commemorated its founding day as World Toilet Day since 2001 and in 2013 the United Nations adopted the 19th of November as UN World Toilet Day. WTO also achieved special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in the same year.
WTO's vision is “To see a world with a clean, safe toilet and sanitation for everyone, everywhere at all times.”
