Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Peru

Location: Santa Cruz de la Tablada

Total Budget: $121,995

Area of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene


The town of Santa Cruz de la Tablada is located in coastal Peru, in an area that does not have sources of surface water. Consequently, the greatest needs of the 172 families (587 inhabitants) are access to potable water and sanitation services. The lack of these services represents one of the main causes of diarrheal and parasitic infections, which affect mainly the younger population of boys and girls.

Currently, the population consumes water from the irrigation canal that passes through the lower part of the town. They bring the water to their homes and store it to be used on days when the canal does not carry water.

In the community of Santa Cruz de la Tablada, we intend to drill a well on community property and use a solar-powered pump to deliver the water to an elevated reservoir located above the community. A passive, gravity-fed system with valves will be used to distribute the purified water to 172 homes and 10 public places through a system of pipes. Each home will have its own access to clean water and a cement wash basin.

Members of the local water committee for Santa Cruz de la Tablada will be trained in the maintenance of the water system and organized so that the sustainability of the system will be secured for the future.

Another objective is to train the residents of San Felipito concerning personal hygiene and cleanliness, especially as it relates to the use of the provided clean water.

The project is being initiated by the Castlegar Rotary Club who will work with the Host club (Huacho Rotary Club), and the Cooperating Organization (Alas de Esperanza), which has extensive experience in the region developing water projects.

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%.
