  • The Rotary Foundation believes the Future Vision Areas of Focus reflect critical humanitarian issues and needs that Rotarians are addressing worldwide. They will align Rotary with other international development efforts and will strategically further the Foundation's mission. Water and Sanitation, Basic Education and Literacy and Economic and Community Development are three of the six goals of The Rotary Foundation Future Vision. We have a project that makes an impact on all of these.
  • We live in a dry country but often take our access to water for granted. Just turn the tap and high quality, safe drinking water is delivered (so long as you paid the bill) for drinking, washing and even just to water the grass.
  • Now imagine you live in another place. You are a child, especially a girl child. The water source for your family is kilometres away. It is your task to walk there collect the water usually in 25 litre container and carry it home. That water maybe dirty, not necessarily good for your health and you face the hazards of predators of all types on the way.   Add to this, while you are busy collecting water for survival of your family, you may not be able to attend school. Another thing that we may take for granted in our own circumstances.
  • I now have pledges from four clubs (including Booragoon) totalling $7067 and therefore still seeking $9,500 in order to make this project possible. To achieve this goal I need to raise most of these funds within February to complete the matching grant before they are cut off for this year in March.   I would like to seek support from the Rotary Club of ______________ to assist in making this project a success. A pledge to support the project of any value would help us towards achievement of this goal.

    1. 1. Water for Education in Zambia We know... it all starts with WATER… Acknowledgement: Extension of work by PDG Patrick Coleman, Rotary Club of Luanshya
    2. 2. The Challenge <ul><li>A polluted well with a rusty bucket was the only source of water for this school catering for 726 students and 260 surrounding homes... </li></ul>
    3. 3. ...until the Rotary Club of Luanshya drilled a deep water well to 50 metres (162 feet) and installed an easy-to-use durable hand pump.
    4. 4. With a DEEP well and a STURDY hand pump <ul><li>At every local basic school, we can find a solution for rural community’s most basic needs - WATER. </li></ul><ul><li>At the same time CHILDREN can: </li></ul><ul><li>• collect clean water at school; </li></ul><ul><li>• attend classes instead of walking miles to collect water; </li></ul><ul><li>• avoid predators who do them harm. </li></ul>
    5. 5. So, here’s the plan... <ul><li>DRILL A WELL </li></ul><ul><li>BUILD 3 TOILETS </li></ul><ul><li>and train the community in maintenance and hygiene... </li></ul><ul><li>for just $10,000 per school. </li></ul><ul><li>Let’s do it together! </li></ul><ul><li>We can create projects that provide water and sanitation for 3, 5 or even 10 schools! </li></ul>
    6. 6. And more!! <ul><li>An aid agency estimates the cost of JUST the well at $12,000-$15,000! </li></ul><ul><li>How can we do a well PLUS 3 toilets for only $10,000? </li></ul><ul><li>WE ARE ROTARIANS!! </li></ul><ul><li>Our labour is free and we find companies that have the people at heart who reduce their overhead costs to make this solution readily available. </li></ul>
    7. 7. Water Collection <ul><li>Then </li></ul><ul><li>Now </li></ul>
    8. 8. However, water alone is only half the job... Safe and clean sanitation facilities are essential to a child’s health and development. In many schools toilet facilities are poor, or even dangerous. At each of our school well projects we also construct 3 toilets - one for girls, boys and teachers. <ul><li>The Old </li></ul><ul><li>And The New </li></ul>
    9. 9. Would your District 9465 Rotary Club like to <ul><li>Make a difference in the world </li></ul><ul><li>Have an impact on the lives of thousands of people in a developing community </li></ul><ul><li>Support the Rotary Foundation by participating in a matching grant project </li></ul><ul><li>Perform International Service which achieves many of the goals of RI President Changemaker Award </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Participate in The Rotary Foundation’s educational and humanitarian service programs (Matching grant) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Find a Rotary club partner in another country and conduct an international service project as either the project host or sponsor.(Sponsor for matching grant project with Rotary Club of Luanshya) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Carry out a sustainable international service project related to at least one of the areas of focus in the RI Strategic Plan. (Two areas of Focus defined above) </li></ul></ul>
    10. 10. Sharing an opportunity. Why? <ul><li>Matching grant projects tend to be high value and beyond the resources especially of clubs which are small or do not have substantial resources. </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge of how Rotary Foundation Matching grants work, how to apply and succeed is not always available in our clubs. </li></ul><ul><li>Finding a suitable project and a suitable partner is not always a simple process. </li></ul><ul><li>Our club is not able to do this alone </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>The greatest outcome will be the support we provide to thousands of people in communities surrounding the three schools.  </li></ul><ul><li>Many of us have met past Ambassadorial Scholar, Aaron Chinyemba, and he remains a member of our community and Rotary alumni. Through this project we can support his community to and strengthen the results of the hardships he has faced whilst improving himself for the future benefit of that community. </li></ul>
    11. 11. How will your club benefit? <ul><li>Matching Grant application is pre-approved and ready for submission </li></ul><ul><li>Help other clubs in our District participate in International Service and Rotary Foundation Matching Grant project. (many clubs would not be able to do by themselves) </li></ul><ul><li>Ready made business plan available for you to use. </li></ul><ul><li>Copy of the matching grant application which may have value as an example for future use </li></ul><ul><li>Sharing the knowledge gained in preparing the application. </li></ul><ul><li>We have found a very capable matching grant partner in the Rotary Club of Luanshya. They competed US$210,000 in matching grant projects in the previous Rotary year. </li></ul><ul><li>Our project with them to provide science kits for 40 schools with a project value of US$32,270 (Booragoon contribution US$17,514) is progressing well through this partnership. </li></ul>
