World Toilet Day 2012 has been brought to you by:
WSSCC's goal is to help achieve sustainable sanitation, hygiene and water supply for all people.
It is committed to ensuring that, between now and 2016, tens of millions of previously unserved people gain access to improved sanitation and hygiene. Poor and marginalized groups are given priority. WSSCC achieves its impact in partnership with its Members, National Coalitions and other development agencies, and through the work of its Global Sanitation Fund. Its advocacy, networking and knowledge management activities are aimed at involving more individuals, organizations and businesses in the work of improving access to sanitation and hygiene, and ensuring that these people have the knowledge and skills they need to do this work.
WSSCC has over 2000 Members, supports coalitions in over 30 countries, and is currently funding eight national programmes. It has a small Geneva-based Secretariat operating within the United Nations system.
World Toilet Organization (WTO) is a global non-profit organization dedicated to improving the conditions of toilets and sanitation worldwide.
Our motto "better lives, bigger dreams" represents our core beliefs. We understand that it is not just about providing access to adequate, clean sanitation - it′s also about giving people back their dignity, providing comfort, improving lives and offering empowerment so that they can strive for brighter future.
We are one of the few organizations whose sole focus is on toilets. Unfortunately, unlike water, toilets do not get the same attention and resources needed - luckily our team likes nothing better than challenges. We believe that through education, training and creating a sanitation marketplace, we can provide business opportunities, sanitation and clean toilets for all.
At Domestos we are proud to be offering to people using our products the possibility to engage and be involved in campaigns to put an end to open defecation. This is one of the big health related causes left to resolve in the World today, and it can improve the health and well-being of billions.
Unilever is active on several fronts to bring our objective of a Billion Better Lives through sustainability to life. For example we have also included the creation of educational programs to teach women and children the importance of good hygienic practices and habits. Nowadays we are proud to be able to adopt similar approaches to tackle the sanitation crisis at scale through business models such as the Domestos Toilet Academies & Sanishop in collaboration with partners and World leaders in sanitation such as WTO, UNICEF and WSSCC.
