International Committee – Pune India Project

Leadership in Pune Toilet Project

One of the many successful project that our Club has participated in is the Pune India Project. The plaque pictures celebrates the original project that led to this one.

The objective of the project is the construction of 272 toilets in villages situated in Velha & Haveli Taluka of Pune District, Maharashtra, India.  Beneficiaries will be 272 families consisting of about 2000 persons in whose homes toilets with septic tanks will be  installed. This will prevent the contamination of the water source and will thus: a) prevent disease; b) improve sanitation; c) improve the health of the community by eradication of water borne illnesses, especially those of women (pregnant and nursing) and children d) will increase security and safety to adolescent girls and women.  The local club spearheading the project is Pimpri, District 3131.  Our club, Durham in District 7710, is the international partner club.  The current amount budgeted for the project is $65,250.  This project builds on a successful project where 204 toilets were constructed in Ambi Village, Pune, India, which was also spearheaded by the Pimpri Club.
