60% of rural Cambodia still defecates in the open due to no proper access to a toilet.
World Toilet Organization's market-based solution 'SaniShop' in Siem Reap is aimed at improving the health of communities by providing access to sanitation. This participatory model enhances livelihoods through job creation, entrepreneurship and the opportunity to improve their quality of life.

A registered charity in Singapore, the World Toilet Organization (WTO) is the leading global voice for sanitation - an international non-profit committed towards building a world with clean, safe toilets for everyone, everywhere at all times. Our work span across the globe and can be seen in countries like Cambodia, India, China, Myanmar, Vietnam, South Africa, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore. To break the taboo on toilets and sanitation, we partnered with the local government to table Singapore's first ever UN resolution which led to the founding of UN World Toilet Day since 2013. Why Toilets? We use them every day - at home, school, work, restaurants, shopping malls - yet we seldom talk about them. The silence around the issue of toilets and sanitation has deadly consequences for those living with proper toilets and sanitation. Diarrhoea - a direct consequence of poor sanitation - kill more children in low-income countries every year than AIDS, malaria and measles combined. Diarrhoea remains a major killer but is largely preventable! Who are affected the most? 2.3 billion people live without access to proper toilets and sanitation. Almost a billion people are forced to pee or poo in the open, i.e. open defecation with disregard to their personal privacy and dignity. This is especially dangerous for women and young girls who are made more vulnerable as a result. What is our goal? To end open defecation worldwide by 2030 in accordance to the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. Plenty has been done, but there is still plenty more to do. We need your help to achieve this goal!
