About World Toilet Day 2022
Public toilets are essential in meeting the sanitation needs of the public especially when they are away from their homes or workstations. Unfortunately, access to clean and dry, well-lit, and well-maintained toilets that meet the diverse needs of the members of the public including children and persons with disability is not always guaranteed. As a result, sanitation and hygiene needs are often compromised.
Wow Mom is pleased to announce the annual World Toilet Day event, an annual celebration that inspires action to address the global sanitation crisis and contribute to the achievement of SDG 6, which promises sanitation for all by 2030. This year, Wow Mom intends to celebrate this day by convening 100 participants from government, civil society, private sector, and academia under the theme of inclusive public toilets. We intend to inspire action to build more inclusive public toilets that meet the diverse needs of all users in all public spaces including cities, churches, and parks. The event will showcase research, innovation, business models, sanitation value chain policies, and best practices around inclusive public toilets worldwide.
Further, this event will mark the inaugural Inclusive Public Toilet Excellence Award that aims at highlighting incredible work by individuals, groups, civil societies, media, and governments working towards the provision of inclusive public toilets in Kenya.
