Proposal Form

Currently 76 children under five years of age in this crèche are required to use dangerous and unsanitary "long drop" uncovered pit toilets with no privacy or fall protection. They are out in the open which are unsafe and unhealthy for children. The existing pit toilets are in the open air and facing a main road. Children using the pit toilets are exposed to passers-bys and are most are unwilling to use toilets even when needed. There are currently only two "long drop" toilets available for 76 children and 12 staff members. The Rotary Club of Richards Bay proposes to build a toilet facility which will allow girls to have four private toilet stalls; boys to have three urinals and one toilet; and staff members will have a toilet for each gender. A critical infrastructure for this poor community.

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%.
