History Logs

Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Kenya

Location: Karen

Total Budget: $50,000

Areas of Focus: Peace and conflict prevention/resolution, Water and sanitation

The project is brought about by the genuine concern for the low morale and resultant poor security service received from the Karen Police Force which was in most part as a direct result of their very poor working conditions within the Karen Police Station.

The Karen Police Station is situated in Karen Area and it has 30 officers servicing a community that is suburban of Nairobi City .

The need :

Supply of fresh water for domestic use and kitchen gardening

We require A borehole to supply fresh water to the Police station, the Health Centre and the community around.

The baseline survey (Hydrological assessment report) has been done and the report submitted. Hydrological and geographical borehole investigations conforming to the Legal requirements and standards was done. The result was the need to drill a borehole of 350 Meters deep.

The project requires hiring experts to drill the borehole, piping the water and designated storage in cisterns.


The total Budget is $ 50,000

The Rotary Club of Karen will coordinate the partners and community involvement.

Project Benefit

Provide access to good health of three security officers

Support efforts of government in providing quality Security Services to all sections of the society

Help project the image of Rotary within the community.

This project on completion will be handed over to the county council by the Rotary club of Karen in the name of all partners who contributed to the realization of the project. No additional funds will be expended on the project by Rotary after the handover.

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%.
