With a pilot project in the second half of 2019, the German Toilet Organization e. V. (GTO) has successfully expanded the impact of its development education work for the first time by using multipliers. Teachers at schools and employees of supply and disposal companies are called upon to apply the knowledge they have learned in their work.
