Initiative: Bhutan Toilet Org
Organization: Bhutan Toilet Org- Clean Toilet for all Campaign
Location: Thimphu, Bhutan
Bhutan Toilet Org (BTO), founded in 2015, started as a Facebook campaign to name and shame dirty public and institutional toilets in Bhutan. However, after observing no improvement in the condition of toilets, they raised over 300 volunteers to gather across the country and clean and repair over 50 public toilets. Thereafter, people of Bhutan realised the importance of the initiative and it was formally established as an organisation. Now they are seen as a credible organisation working towards sanitation that the government and other organisations seek advice and partner with. They continue to effectively use Facebook to share stories of their campaigns, engage in advocacy on pertinent issues, garner support for campaigns and raise funds.
