We, the people who can't wait

World Toilet Day is about the 2.5 billion people who

lack access to improved sanitation.

It is about the 1 billion people who have to

defecate in the open. 

It is about the women and girls who are particularly

at risk because of this situation.


And it is about you, who can't wait to change this situation.


Join the global campaign, organize your own initiative,
event, project and be part of the people who can't wait.
