Happy Village Project





History Logs

Project Description

Region: South-East Asia

Country: India

Location: Cochin

Total Budget: $66,750

Area of Focus: Water and sanitation

The full project name is Happy Village Project-Provision of Toilets at Perambulam. The project would build toilets or toilet blocks over an 18 month period for 80 to 100 homes on the island of Perambulam, located on a lake near Cochin, India. Members of the Rotary Club of Cochin have identified Perambulum as an area in which sanitation facilities are sorely lacking and have established an active RCC on the island to help address the problem. Providing clean water and preventing disease are consistent with Rotary's areas of focus and we would look forward to partnering with The Rotary Club of Cochin to achieve project goals. We anticipate that Rotary Club of La Jolla members, in addition to contributing funds and reviewing project plans, will have an opportunity to visit the site and assist where needed.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






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%.
