Rotary Prahran at our Indian school toilet opening

Our Club helped to build toilets for senior girls at a school of over 2,000 students with NO TOILETS! Only around 25% of these kids even have toilets at home.... open air toileting is the norm, but unsanitary & very unsafe. Next project, toilets for the middle school girls, then little ones then the boys.... keeping girls safe & in school!
