Priti Kapur
Priti, who has been away for some weeks, greeted everyone and said that it is good to be back. She then raised the issue of the Board’s appointment of PP Gary to the position of Director for the coming Rotary year, and expressed concern about the appointment and the way in which it was made.

President Dona cut the discussion short stating that reviewing the circumstances in an open meeting was not appropriate.

GUEST SPEAKER
Mr. Dirk Van Esbroek
Dirk Van Esbroek, Director of “South Research” in Leuven, Belgium, talked about a development program he had worked on some years ago in Indonesia. It was a four-year program that was community-led and that had as its goal changing individual behavior to improve the health and the viability of the community.

The program focused on various aspects of total sanitation, including the introduction of toilets, hand-washing, proper food storage, water management, and management of solid and liquid waste.

An important aspect of the program was the training of 22,000 local women as health workers. Another important aspect was that there was no subsidy for participation, so that local people had to be educated to invest in the program, which increased their participation. This project really changed the lives of the people, especially those of women.

Although it increased the demand for water, it greatly reduced the spread of water-borne illnesses, and it had a major impact on the lives of 1.4 million people and is generally regarded as the most successful such project ever undertaken in Indonesia (and perhaps S.E. Asia).

Raffle
Tickets for IDR 230,000.- were sold. The prize, a voucher for a spa treatment, was won by our guest Christine Velde. Past winners owing prizes are reminded not to forget to make their contributions at forthcoming meetings.

Fines
No fines today.

President Dona thank everyone for joining today and the meeting was adjourned at 2:00PM.
