Objective - Providing Dignity and Sanitation by building 250 Toilets in Mewat, India. Although Mewat is just 120km from New Delhi, this is the most backward part of the state and lags on all measures of development like, life expectancy, literacy, infant mortality, mother mortality and access to water and sanitation.

BRING SOME JOY TO KIDS NOT GOING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS 🎄
The Beecroft Rotary Tree of Joy is this year supporting Taldumande Youth Services kids. Our Rotary Tree of Joy is now up in Beecroft Place, Beecroft.
TOILETRY STARTER PACKS HAVE BEEN DELIVERED
We have today completed the packing of the toiletry starter packs for the 500 homeless Sydney kids who each year enter the services of Taldumande Youth Services.
Rotary Beecroft are so very proud of this achievement which could not have been done without the great support of YOU, our local community, who in the end, DONATED OVER 9,500 TOILETRY ITEMS!!!!!
Our wonderful volunteers who offered up their homes for our drop off addresses, and those precious volunteers that gave up hours/days/weeks to help sort and pack these 9,500 items into 500 toiletry packs and finally delivery them.
Another special thank you to JP and the staff at Custom Gear who were very helpful in getting the toiletry bags made up and printed for us in what was a tight time line
Cheers everyone and thank you. Let’s start putting these goodies away for our collection next year.
Our application to provide 250 flushing toilets with hand washing sinks in Mewat, India has been approved for a total project outlay of about AUD$100K by The Rotary Foundation.
