Rotary Club Of Thane

  2. 2. Our Location <ul><li>We are located in Thane near Mumbai (Bombay) which is on the west coast of India </li></ul><ul><li>We are in a city with population of surrounded by rural, agricultural and national forest areas around us </li></ul><ul><li>This gives us a golden opportunity to serve urban as well as rural population </li></ul>

  4. 4. Elders’ Home <ul><li>We plan to build and operate an elders’ home in our club area. </li></ul><ul><li>We will be working jointly with an institution which at present runs a residential facility for mentally challenged children. They have the land and the competency to operate a residential care facility </li></ul><ul><li>We can raise the funds, construct the facility and then support it financially and through volunteer work </li></ul>
  5. 5. Check Dams <ul><li>There are many villages in our area which receive water for agriculture for only a part of the year i.e. during monsoon. </li></ul><ul><li>The villagers have to fetch drinking water from miles away, as the sources are far and between. </li></ul><ul><li>By building simple concrete check dams or bunds, we can create small ponds which can provide agricultural as well as drinking water. </li></ul><ul><li>Without these bunds, the water just runs off to back-bays and sea. </li></ul><ul><li>A bonus is that with these bunds, the sub-soil water level also goes up and the villagers can get drinking water right in their villages by using simple hand pumps. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Check Dams <ul><li>The cost of one bund US$7,500. 00 </li></ul><ul><li>Cost of four bore-wells with hand pump US$3,000 </li></ul><ul><li>Villagers benefitted 800+. </li></ul>

  12. 12. RYLA <ul><li>We organise a RYLA either jointly with other Rotary Clubs in the area or by ourselves. Last year we took a group of Interactors on a 2 day nature trail where they were guided through a national park by experts on flora and fauna. In the evening till midnight the youngsters interacted with some more experts who explained to them the importance of preserving the environment around us and the multitude of vegetation and wild life which has equal right to share the biosphere as human beings. Most of the participants excelled in the quiz organised on the subject towards the end of the programme. The event was so interesting that the Interactors had to be persuaded to leave at the appointed time. </li></ul>
