Mrs. Schafer

20 years ago, Jack Sim, a successful businessman based in Singapore, decided he would do something about the neglect of sanitation. In 2001, he founded the World Toilet Organization (WTO).

Two decades later, sanitation is now a major issue on the global development agenda, thanks in no small part to Jack Sim’s leadership and advocacy. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the WTO, a special book has been made, telling the story of how the WTO and its partners have broken taboos and made change happen over the past two decades.
