Rotary club of Mumbai South (RCMS) is one of the foremost clubs in District 3140 actively involved in service to humanity through its diverse vocational and community service projects. The club was chartered in 1971 .

JAWAHAR :Jawhar Taluka (District) is 180 KM from Mumbai, the financial capital of India. It consists of 272 hamlets called PADA's.The population in PADA varies from 100 to 600 nos. 90% of the population belongs to Schedule Tribes and caste. 80% of the population live below the poverty line. Geographical area is 1.5 lakhs acres. Adivasi's are extremely poor, ignorant, uneducated and do not adopt family planning methods. They lack basic amenities such as health, education, irrigation and employment.

DRINKING WATER

A pressing problem

Wells, which are the main source of drinking water, are constructed by the Government and are located in the valley.

As per the socio norms, the task of fetching water down under the valley to the respective huts on hillock is assigned to the women, children in the house.(Site pHOTOGRAPHS ATTACHED ) The children and Adivasi women of these villages have to walk a distance of more than 1,000 m in hilly terrain with pots of water on their head in extreme climatic conditions.

The children of the house are forced to do house work, main being fetching water instead of sending them to school and educating them.

WATER BRONE DISEASE

The wells are unprotected resulting in scarcity of potable drinking water, it has resulted in water borne diseases such as Diarrhea, Cholera, Dysentery, Typhoid, etc. The symptoms include abdominal discomfort, fatigue, weight loss, bloating, fever, loss of appetite, cramps, nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, rash or itchy skin, jaundice, nose bleed, etc.

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%.
