Bio Toilets in India

Bhubaneswar is the capital of the Indian state of Odisha.  It is the largest city in Odisha and is a centre of economic and religious importance in Eastern India.  Bhubaneswar is often referred to as a "Temple City of India".
 
But ..... there are 338 unauthorised slums in Bhubaneswar  - many households do not have toilets and a few who have sanitary toilets have no drainage, water and maintenance facilities!!
 
Caloundra Rotary - in conjunction with others - has received approval by The Rotary Foundation for a Global Grant to provide the major part of the US$31,500  project cost to provide 40 bio toilets in 10 urban slums. 
 
Rotary International President Elect, Mark Maloney handed over the first of the 10 slums to receive the bio-toilets on 20 February 2019.  The project will be completed by the end of March with all 10 slums being provided with safe, clean bio-toilets.
 
Funding by the Rotary Club of Caloundra US$5,250
