Where it all began
The idea for Operation Toilets Australia (OTA) was brought to the Rotary Club of Box Hill Central by club member Mark Balla who had learned during a trip to India that many schools in the developing world have no toilets.
He learned about the terrible impact this had on the lives of the children in these schools, and most particularly on the lives of adolescent girls in the schools and he felt compelled to do something about it.
The Rotary Club of Box Hill Central adopted the mission with gusto and the rest is history. To date we have reached over 30,000 children with projects over the next 18 months expected to lift this figure to well over 100,000.
