Revised project description:
The Rotary Club of Abuja Ministers Hill has identified a critical need in the Jahi community of Abuja - access to clean drinking water. The community currently relies on an unclean and unreliable water source, which poses a severe health risk to the residents. Therefore, the Club proposes to implement a project aimed at providing the community with a sustainable source of clean water.
The project will involve drilling a borehole and installing a solar-powered water pump and filtration system in the community. This will ensure that the residents have access to a reliable and clean source of water throughout the year. The Club will also conduct community sensitization campaigns to educate residents on the importance of clean water and proper hygiene practices to prevent waterborne diseases.
The Rotary Club of Abuja Ministers Hill will work with local partners, including the Jahi Community Development Association and the Abuja Environmental Protection Board, to implement the project. The Club will form a project committee comprising members of the Rotary Club, community leaders, and technical experts to oversee the project's implementation and ensure its sustainability. The committee will also coordinate community sensitization campaigns and monitor the project's impact on the community.
The project will be implemented over a period of six months, starting in April 2023. The project timeline will be as follows:
April - May 2023: Borehole drilling and installation of the solar-powered water pump and filtration system
June - August 2023: Community sensitization campaigns on the importance of clean water and proper hygiene practices
September 2023: Monitoring and evaluation of the project's impact on the community
The total project budget will be $35,000. The funds will be used for the following:
Borehole drilling and installation of the solar-powered water pump and filtration system: $25,000
Community sensitization campaigns: $5,000
Monitoring and evaluation: $2,000
Club members will be actively involved in the project's implementation, including participating in the community sensitization campaigns and monitoring and evaluation activities. Members will also contribute to fundraising efforts to raise the Club's share of the project funds.
Upon completion of the project, the Club will submit a final report to The Rotary Foundation within two months. The report will detail the project's impact on the community, including the number of beneficiaries and the improvements in health and hygiene practices.
The Rotary Club of Abuja Ministers Hill is committed to making a positive impact on the Jahi community and improving the quality of life of its residents. With the support of The Rotary Foundation, we are confident that we can achieve our goal of providing the community with access to clean water and reducing the incidence of waterborne diseases.
