Vishal Himalaya Foundation in Mercer Island, WA joined forces with Rotary International on sanitation projects to build toilets in villages. In 2008, a group of Rotarians of Mercer Island visited the village Gaunapur, 20km north of Akola city, to see the site of a future check-dam. As they left the site and their jeep drove the dusty road to the village, two figures seated across each other on either side of the road were revealed. Women were relieving themselves in the mere privacy of the darkness of dusk. A plan was born to build toilets. Funding was arranged in our ongoing partnership with Rotary International. About 240 toilets are nearing completion in two villages. Contributions from families is a requirement.
