A FEW WORDS ABOUT US

ABOUT US

 

The idea of Dutch Toilet Organisation (DTO) was born after the high level of interest in the ‘Friendly Restrooms for Elderly People/ Intelligent toilet’ project which was funded by the European Union. The founding members created DTO in 2008.

 

From 2016 the DTO would like to expand and offer its services to the whole world to

fulfil the core mission of the organization.

 

We believe in:

• Sustainability • Sanitation for all • Youth • Education • Development
