Sanitation issues in Cambodia affect women more than men. Often, women are hesitant to use village squat toilets as they have no privacy and no facilities for washing themselves or their children. 
Sanitation, more than many other human rights issues, evokes the concept of human dignity; consider the vulnerability and shame that so many people experience every day when, again, they are forced to carry out all ablutions in the open.
Washrooms are a place of safety when women are most vulnerable. The washrooms provided by Cambodia Clean Water & Toilet through this project, are to incorporate the original toilet provided but to increase the size of the space so that room for bathing with a bucket and scoop can be added so that women can bathe themselves and their children privately. 
In previous work by CCW&T, privacy and safety issues had not been taken into account. In addition, the brickwork was at floor level which meant the walls were continually wet, leading to damaged timber structures through rot. As Kok Tnoth Village is in the Angkor archeological park area, the earlier toilets also had thatched walls to comply with requirements of the archeological park authority.  
This requirement has been relaxed, so for the past four years the project team has used Colorbond steel for the walls and roof. The brickwork is now four layers high to keep the timber frame off the ground level and out of the water, and there is now a steel framed door. The underground septic tank system did not need any changes, so renovations only involve removal of the original above-ground structure and rebuilding the toilet to incorporate a washroom.


Cambodia Clean Water & Toilet will construct six (6) washrooms in Kok Tnoth village in Cambodia.The cost of each upgrade and restoration is US$285. This equates to AU$420 at the current exchange rate (US$1.00 = AU$0.68).  The costs are itemized on the following page. Total costs for Batch A toilets will be AU$2,520.
The work is being supported jointly by Rotary Club of Port Phillip, Rotary Club of Chadstone East Malvern, World of Difference Project and Rotary District 9800.

What a fabulous evening was had by all at the Albert Park Yacht Club on the 19th of July. it was a very special event for two reasons, the first being the changeover of Port Phillip Rotary's presidents and also the 70th anniversary of the founding of Melbourne South Rotary.  The venue was fabulous and the views over the lake were stunning. 
Congratulations to Warwick Lloyd, our new president.  We are sure that you will have a memorable year and look forward to the exciting events and projects coming up.  Warwick will be well supported by all club members and Rotary in general.
The Rotary Club of Melbourne South owes its existence to its parent club, the Rotary Club of Melbourne. The Melbourne Club formed clubs in the provincial cities, but suburban clubs were resisted for a time and was not until Mr. Angus Mitchell, Club President, twice District Governor and the first Australian Rotary International President, formulated a plan that the advent of suburban clubs became acceptable and common place. So it was that in mid-April 1952 that the Rotary Club of Melbourne ceded the Parish of Melbourne South, which included the cities of Port Melbourne and South Melbourne.
The evening was a lot of fun and it was great to see Amanda Wendt (DG), Phillip Archer (PDG), Lili Teichman, Anne Frueh, Matthew Proctor (RCAP), Richard Chater (RCAP) Merv Ritter (RC Caulfield) and so many others.
The food was fantastic thanks to Grant Travill and his staff.  Thanks to Albert Park Yacht Club for manning the bar. The entertainment was terrific and we were lucky enough to have Sue Foley sing a few songs too. Warwick especially asked Sue to sing Imagine, keeping in line with the new logo.
Thank you everyone for making it such a memorable event.
