Project Launch - 2nd Week of RFE

Rotarians from RC Cataraqui and other District 7040 Clubs from Rotary Friendship Exchange were among the guests of honour at the launch of a water and sanitation project co-sponsored by the Rotary Clubs of Madras and Chennai Chola.  The inauguration 80 eighty new public toilets at Kannan Kottai Village was celebrated.  In this area of India public defecation was common as there were no toilet facilities available even at schools.  This lack of sanitation is a health hazard, as diseases like Polio, which Rotary has worked so hard to eliminate in India, are passed through infected soils and other means.  Lack of sanitation in schools is a major impediment for young girls to get an education.  Many choose to stay home rather than risk issues with menstruation in a public space.  The entire project will see over 300 public toilets built.  Thanks to Cataraqui Rotarian John Gale for spearheading this project, and congratulations to John as he was the guest of honour at the launch event.
