Mark Balla - Toilet Warrior

Water & Sanitation Rotarian Action Group (WASRAG)


Mark Balla is better known as the Toilet Warrior. He is a member and immediate past president of the Rotary Club of Box Hill Central, Vic.
During a business trip to India, Mark noticed that most schools didn't have toilets. The lack of a toilet facility was preventing children from attending school, and this was particularly difficult for female teachers and students.
Mark established the Operation Toilets - We Can't Wait Foundation, which builds toilets and delivers hygiene education programs in schools in developing countries
With the backing of his Rotary club and the assistance of Rotary grants, as well as funds from other partners, Mark's foundation has extended its work to other parts of the world, including Timor-Leste and Ethiopia.
Through his vision and expertise, Mark has shown us how toilets can make an impact on underprivileged children
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. Since 1910, Rotary has empowered dreamers like Mark to use their passion, energy and intelligence to take action and create sustainable projects to solve world problems.
When you gather together with 1.2 million people of like mind and have people like Bill and Melinda Gates donate funds to help achieve objectives, the opportunity for success is far greater."
Rotary has indeed empowered leaders who have dreamed the impossible dream!

End Polio Now Message Hits The Road

The Rotary Polio Ute relay travelled throughout District 9510, from Alice Springs to Adelaide, in late 2020, spreading the word of Rotary’s efforts to eradicate polio.
The Rotary Polio Ute Relay started at Alice Springs on World Polio Day, October 24, 2020.
The new release Mazda BT-50 ute was supported by Paradise Motors and also carried the relay baton from one Rotary Club to the next. The BT is short for baton transfer! In fact, the baton recognises the Rotary International End Polio Now theme, as well as the centenary of Rotary in Australia, New Zealand and Oceania this year.
