Proposal Form

This is a Humanitarian and Vocational Training Project to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities in the Bohol Island region of the Philippines by providing life changing wheelchairs, mobility devices, and accessible educational environments. District 5610 has partnered with the Host Rotary Club - Tagbilaran, Philipines (District 3860).

Objectives include: 1) Provide wheelchairs and other mobility devices to the Philippines, assisted by the District 3860 Rotary Club. 2) Send a Vocational Training Team from the United States to assist in training Filipino teams in fitting and maintaining wheelchairs for recipients. 3) Complete a renovation of accessible classrooms and bathrooms for those with disabilities at Valencia Technical Vocational High School. 4) Continuously monitor and evaluate impact of wheelchair access to high school education for individuals with disabilities in the Philippines.

This project is currently scheduled for July 2021. The total project budget is $106,639 US Dollars, and is comprised of wheelchairs, shipment, customs fees, delivery, training and fitting, classroom and bathroom renovation for accessibility, personnel and other expenses. The Rotary Club of Tagbilaran Philippines additionally will be supported by other Rotary clubs on Bohol Island and District 3810. The host club will assist in facilitating smooth offload of the container of chairs with customs officials at the Bohol Island Port. They will also arrange transportation of the container to Valencia Technical-Vocational High School. Finally, they will arrange local accommodation for the VTT team for the week they will be in the Philippines. Volunteers from the aforementioned Philippines Rotary clubs will assist the VTT team and the Federation staff in assembly of chairs, fitting, adjusting and training wheelchair recipients in wheelchair use.

The international Rotarians will:

1)Secure the bulk of matching funds to meet the requirements of this global grant request.

2)Recruit and participate as members of the Vocation Training Team. Suggest improvements in the project methodology and implementation, especially when they visit the Philippines.

3)Visit with individual wheelchair recipients, Bohol Federation of People with Disabilities, Valencia Technical-Vocational High School, host and supporting Philippines Rotary clubs involved in the project.

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%.
