Hello @GirlsAskGuys Community,
World Toilet Day (WTD) is an official United Nations international observance day, celebrated on 19 November to raise awareness of the global sanitation crisis.
This is done through public communications, campaigns, reports and events. Worldwide 4.5 billion people live without "safely managed sanitation.
The global sanitation crisis affects people in developing countries the most. World Toilet Day is a call to action. The right to water and sanitation was officially declared a human right by the UN on 28 July 2010.
World Toilet Day was established by the World Toilet Organization in 2001. In 2013 UN passed a resolution recognizing World Toilet Day as an official UN international day.
World's biggest toilet pot model was unveiled at Marora, popularly known as the "TRUMP VILLAGE" in Haryana on the World Toilet Day today in a bid to create awareness towards sanitation and use of toilets.
The nondescript village, with a population of 1,800, in Mewat region was in June rechristened as "Trump village" by NGO Sulabh International Social Service Organisation.
Sulabh International Social Service Organisation in a gesture to US president Donald Trump Sanitation expert and Sulabh International founder Bindeshwar Pathak and other dignitaries inaugurated the "biggest toilet pot of the world"
Organising a programme in a remote village of Haryana on the World Toilet Day was a promotional concept in connection with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision to make villages in India free from open defecation on the occasion of Mahatma Gandh's 150th birth anniversary year in 2019
"Trump's slogan is 'Make America Great Again' and our Prime Minister's credo is Make In India so we thought why not make a humble beginning honouring the friendship of the two.
Apart from inaugurating individual toilets, books on the use of toilets and sanitation were also released. We hope the move would win enough attention and goodwill to raise awareness for a major social problem.
And various other books.

More than 4.9 million household toilets were constructed after the launch of Swachh Bharat Mission (Gramin), indicating substantial acceleration in the pace of construction after its launch by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on October 2 2014.
It is seen in graphs that while there has been an increase in individual household toilets over the years the number of school and anganwadi toilets has drastically decreased.
In urban areas, 1 million toilets were constructed.
The new mission aimed to rope in private and public sector companies for the construction of toilets.
Until March 31, 2015, only 3,466 toilets were constructed in schools by corporates. while PSUs constructed more toilets at around 141,000.
Around 81,400 toilets were constructed under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) in 2015-16 as against 672,000 toilets constructed under the same scheme in 2014-15.
Modi has emphasised that functioning toilets need to be available for girls in government schools. The safety of women is another major area of concern.

I see one toilet built as a real change. Massive public sector undertakings and avid participation, I do have complete hope and trust in this pioneering campaign."
‘Swachh Bharat’ is more than a campaign. It is an IDEOLOGY."
From my point of view Few Media / News companies are more concerned about the TRP & viewer engagement rather than just the actual news.
Asian countries related news suffer a poor portrayal. Surprisingly, some XENOPHOBIC media houses show successes but also add a bit of spices. These spices include listing a lot of weaknesses of Asian Countries and then mocking them, thus effectively undermining the achievements.
