March 2023 update

Through funds raised from clubs, events, personal and online
donations totaling about $120,000, to date four bores have been installed and along with more committed funds at least three more bores are due to be completed in the next couple of months. 

The next phase will be then be re-igniting the application process for the Rotary Global Grant and if successful another eight  bores can be installed.

Challenge: Access to clean drinking water is the most basic human right. The women and children, especially the girls will walk up to 8 kms daily to collect water. This hinders the children educational opportunities, increases the health burden and severely impacts on economic development.
Solution: To provide clean accessible drinking water for the people in the Tarime District.
Long term impact: The alleviation of poverty through giving health, educational and enterprise opportunities.
