Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Uganda

Location: Mbarara

Total Budget: $43,455

Areas of Focus: Water and sanitation, Basic education and literacy



1. NEEDS ASSESSMENT OF THE PROJECT

St. Mukasa Preparatory Seminary is a primary School which admits pupils from primary four to primary seven. It relies on only rainwater harvesting for domestic and other uses like washing, bathing and other sundry functions. Currently it has a population of 885 pupils whose ages range between 11 and 14 years. These students are managed by a staff of 55. Whereas the institution has sufficient buildings, it does not have enough rain water and this is what the project wishes to address. Interestingly this school has continued to excel at PLE in spite of this handicap.

2. OBJECTIVE

The Project seeks to provide water and thus helps pupils to access clean water and improve sanitation. In so doing, there will be improved health. Time will be saved for learning activities and the environment will be protected from erosion.

3. COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTION

The Seminary will be involved in the provision of labour as necessary, and sustaining it in the long run.

4. CLUB CONTRIBUTION

The club will monitor implementation and evaluation of the project.

5. CONTACT PERSON

Rotarian Richard Barigye and Rotarian George W. Kwishima on rotarwa@yahoo.com and eduoffice@yahoo.com

6. PROJECT MARKETING STRATEGIES

Each Rotarian in the club will be assigned a duty in the project.

Funds will be sought from the district and partners like, the Rotary Club of Kololo East.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
