RC Dombivli East : Global Grant for Providing Furniture and Computers to 14 School in Rural Areas of Murbad in Thane District

Murbad, Shahapur and Bhiwandi, areas of Thane District in Maharashtra in India, are rural and tribal areas. Rotary Club of Dombivli East [RCDE Club ID 22963] has been visiting Murbad and Shahapur area and discussing with Local village heads, Teachers and Principals and head of Grampanchayats to understand their needs and prepare a shelf of projects.

Zilha Parishad schools as well as Schools operated by other NGO organizations in these regions lack basic infrastructure in these schools. Students from nearby villages, economically backward families, seek admission to these schools for the basic education from 1st to 10th Standard.

Our club therefore proposed a Global Grant Project for providing infrastructure support to 14 schools in the region. We plan to provide the schools with Book Cases, Cupboards, Tables, Chairs, Benches, Fans, Water Cooler and Water Filter, Sports and Musical Instruments, Desktops, Laptops Computers etc. We will aim to improve and impact the lives of 1500 school children and over 75 teachers and the parents of the students. Our Club and our District Team have agreed to support the project.

We are also providing these schools with e-learning kits through a separate District Grant and are taking care of Toilets blocks and Handwash Stations though CSR grants.

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%.
