We will provide a borehole water system for Sangla Community and water pumps for five rural health clinics. This will provide a source of clean water for about 18,000 people.
The Sangla community is a poor community on the outskirts of Migori Town in Kenya. They do not have a reliable source of clean water. The women can sometimes get water from a borehole at a nearby school. Sometimes they get it from a polluted stream and sometimes they must buy it from vendors that carry it from the Migori River.
The water system will be owned and managed by the Sangla Women's group, which has been chartered for several years and supports women in the community. We will drill a borehole, install a solar powered pump, an elevated water tank and a small kiosk to dispense the water from. The women will sell the water to the local community to pay for operations and maintenance. The kiosk will also serve as a small shop where the Women's group will sell items and farm produce.
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%.
