Project Description

Region: North America

Country: Mexico

Location: Ensenada

Total Budget: $54,750

Area of Focus: Water and sanitation


Water for schools in Ensenada, Mexico is carried there in 5 gallon jugs and is not sanitized. In 2013-2014 Victorville and Ensenada co-operated in the building of FIVE 1,981 gallon water tanks and the supporting infrastructure at FIVE schools.

In 2014-2015 we provided THREE tanks using non-grant funds.

In 2016-2019 we plan to provide TWELVE more schools with three of these tanks each (max 36 tanks), which will provide clean water to the children and staff at TWELVE schools.

The Ensenada Noon Rotary Club is our partner in this project.

All the money from this grant will be used for the material, supplies and labor necessary to complete the building of the three water tanks per school and the supporting infrastructure, as in our successfully complete 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 projects.

Victorville and Ensenada club members and their families are engaged in the landscaping of the areas around the completed tanks.

We are looking for other Rotary Clubs and interested parties to provide financial funding to this project.

Rotary Club of Adelanto, CA has sent a check for $4,000 to the RC of Victorville and Apple Valley, CA have committed up to $4,500.

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%.
