Our plans to create another Rotary Project to distribute the potable water from the Ndandini well so that the 3000+ people living near Kyaithani Village can get access to the precious water have moved several steps further in the past month.
We have put together the proposal for a plan (total cost approximately us$62,500) which has been now been accepted by The Rotary Foundation. The proposal would see us install water tanks at the 6 schools in the Ndandini area and provide a tractor and water wagon to deliver the potable water from the Ndandini well to each school. 1200 schoolchildren will benefit from this every day. We also aim to install 3 more water tanks in locations around the village area so that we will reach all 3000+ villagers.
We will need us$25,000 in donations for this project. Once we raise that amount (hopefully by July 1, 2011) we can then apply to The Rotary Foundation for grants totalling us$37,500 which will provide the total funding for the project.
We have already secured us$5,000 and are actively seeking partners for the additional us$20,000.
