History Logs

Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Brazil

Location: Jacare dos Homens

Total Budget: $32,000

Area of Focus: Water and sanitation

The project aims at the reuse of black and gray water with the production of agroecological pits, and the water is reused for the fertirrigation of crops chosen by the families in the city of Jacaré dos Homens in the state of Alagoas.

60 families will benefit, through their needs, such as lack of water and lack of sanitation in the property.

The use of this method also results in improved food production, reuse of tires, improvement of soil, property and the region.

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%.
