Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Kolkata

Total Budget: $45,000

Area of Focus: Water and sanitation

Most of the rural villages in West Bengal, lack sources of clean drinking water and totally lack toilet facilities causing stomach diseases e.g. diarrhea, dysentery, worms etc. 200 Toilets @ Rs 12,000/- (US$ 200/-) will be constructed as per the UNICEF recommended SOAK PIT design. Toilets would be provided to each household consisting of 5 - 8 family members. Beneficiaries will provide land and help in the execution of the project with unskilled labor. Beneficiaries are expected to utilize and maintain toilets. Spread word on hygienic living and good sanitation practices (US$ 5,000/-).

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%.
