The 19th of November is World Toilet Day. A special day to raise awareness for the 2.5 billion humans (almost half of world's population) who don't have access to toilets and proper sanitation. These are people without toilets who are forced to go in public places.

World Toilet Day is a day to celebrate the importance of sanitation and push for it across the world.

This campaign is part of the World Toilet Organization - WTO, which is a global non-profit organization committed to improving toilet and sanitation conditions around the world. WTO focuses more on the toilet conditions rather than the use of water, which falls under the common topic of sanitation and general health.

The World Toilet Organization - WTO was Founded in the year 2001 by Jack Sim who also established the Restroom Association in Singapore - RAS in the year 1998.

The World Toilet Organization - WTO was founded by fifteen members, then gradually grew into more than 150 different organizations in more than 50 countries around the world. The WTO aims at eliminating the toilet taboo and delivering constant sanitation.

WTO also organizers the World Toilet Summit and World Toilet Expo and Forum which was first held in 2001 in Singapore.
