Over the past year, CCDO has been fortunate to have Rotary Club of Sentosa sponsor Rotary Global Grants to build 24 Toilet Blocks with washstands in our rural schools. We have just been awarded a 7th Global Grant to build 5 more toilet blocks. Steve Swartz of Rotary Club of Phnom Penh Metro has been overseeing this project. He recently visited the schools and noticed that each toilet block also had cement walkways from classroom lined with flowers, so that the students can keep dry in the muddy rainy season. The schools and communities provided the walkways.
The one question many of the students asked was :
“Can we please have toilets in our homes, too?”
A brick latrine costs $360.
