Sinking of borehole with associated facilities and construction of a toilet building with 8 toilet for boys (4 toilets) and girls (4 toilets) for two public schools in Rivers State.

Objective of Project:

Objective of the project is to promote water availability, sanitation and basic hygiene amongst students and staff of public schools in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. This will also help in preventing the transmission of disease and discouraging open defecation

Intended Beneficiaries:

The intended beneficiaries are the over 1000 student population in each of the schools and their teachers and other workers in the schools.

Additional Info:

Water, sanitation and hygiene is a basic problem in public schools in our communities, that is further compounded by COVID-19 pandemic (i.e. regular washing of hands). Provision of water borehole and sanitation facilities in the identified schools will not only help address the hygiene problem but also help in the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

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%.
