Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Nigeria

Location: Kwara State

Total Budget: $50,936

Area of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene

Accessibility to clean water is a major problem in about 10 communities located in Kwara State and this has led to spread of diseases such as diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid and has resulted in the death of many women and children.

The Rotary Club of Ilorin with great understanding of the global need for clean water and improved sanitation, being one of Rotary Foundation's six areas of focus, discussed and interacted with the community leaders of the 10 (Ten) Poverty stricken communities and they complained about the lack of portable water for domestic purposes which has led to poor sanitation. The lack of clean water and poor sanitation has caused many diseases.

The Ten(10) Boreholes will be completed within Six (6) months.

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%.
