Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Uganda

Total Budget: $75,250

Area of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene

The Rotary Club of Front Royal has partnered with the Rotary Club of Port-Bell and Hoima-Kitara in Uganda to install water collection gutters on the school and pipe the collected water into a 250,000 liter masonry tank.

Solar power will be used to pump the water into two overhead plastic water day tanks each with 10,000 liter capacity. The water will then be distributed to three key user points.To support the program, training will be carried out for the team on water management, sanitation and hygiene and menstrual hygiene management. The students will be trained on making re-usable sanitary pads.

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%.
