This project will build upon the collaborative water and sanitation projects already completed by the Rotary Club of Grahamstown with the support of the Rotary Club of Jackson Hole in the Grahamstown/Makhanda schools. These projects have established consistent daily running water, filtered water for drinking (and consumption through the School Nutrition Programs) and have repaired all leaks at the seven identified schools. This current global grant will allow us to perform significant renovation to all toilet blocks at these schools as well as provide significant improvements to the kitchens utilized for the National School Nutrition Programs. Furthermore, when appropriate, rainwater capture potential will be improved through repair and renovation of roofs and gutters at select schools.
This project needs to receive some pledges to go to the next level. Please check the "Financing" tab to see the list of current pledges. Once the amount pledged is equal to the project budget, the status of the project will be automatically changed to "Fully Pledged". Click here to pledge support for this 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%.
