Uganda Water Project
CLEAN WATER  SAVES CHILDREN’S LIVES &
ENABLES GIRLS TO GO TO SCHOOL
 
Currently, clean, safe drinking water is not available for over 300 million people in Sub Saharan Africa. Worldwide, one child dies every 16 seconds due to water contaminated with bacteria and parasites.  Today, in Poyemi Village, Iyolwa near Tororo, Uganda, women and children spend the entire day collecting contaminated water for their families rather than attending school and improving the local economy. The United Nations estimates that the women and children of Sub Saharan Africa spend 40 billion hours a year collecting water, equivalent to one entire year’s labor in all of France. 

The Rotary Club of Carmichael has partnered with The Rotary Club of Tororo, Uganda to build five 300 foot deep wells with solar powered submersible pumps to provide clean drinking water to 10,000 people and three primary schools in Poyemi Village, Uganda.   
We are fortunate to have a club member, Richard Olebe, who was born and raised in Uganda, has two Masters degrees in engineering from Stanford University, and has 32 years of experience working on various water projects in the US to provide the technical expertise and connections in Uganda to execute this project.

The project will cost $200,000.    We need your help to raise $56,000.   The remaining funds will come from funds from Rotary Districts 5180 and 9211 and The Rotary International World Fund.  To date our club members have raised over $40,000.  

A tax deductible donation of $100 will provide clean water to a family of 5 for over 10 years. (We are a 501(c)(3) organization: EIN 81-0777203)

This project is dedicated to the late Sam Owori (1941- 2017) the 2017 Rotary International President Elect and Founder in 1978 of the Tororo Rotary Club.
