Deep-Well Construction





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: Philippines

Location: Central Luzon

Total Budget: $30,001

Area of Focus: Water and sanitation

Description of the Project:

The Aetas are indigenous people living in different mountainous places in Luzon. They can be found in the provinces of Pampanga, Zambales, and Tarlac, to name a few. This Aeta community is located at the top of a hill with a small school built for the children and the houses were also built by the non-governmental institutions. They have electricity but no source of water. The Aetas get their water from a spring or water streams and have to walk a long distance uphill.

Our plan is to construct a deepwell in every sitio (small community of 200 families) in 9 sitios. Since the women Aetas will not be fetching water anymore, they will have more time for tilling the soil and plant root crops or they can engage themselves in some livelihood projects to earn extra income. There are more Aeta communities who are requesting for deep wells so they wouldn't be fetching unclean water from the spring or streams.


The elders and officers of the Aeta as part of the community cooperative structure promise to look after the deep-well to ensure that the structure is still viable and will be producing clean, safe water for them.

The project is not income generating per se, but since women Aetas will not be fetching water anymore for their families, they can devote their time to planting crops or do some livelihood projects like weaving or sewing, or making baskets for some additional income.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation




Additional Contribution (not matched by The Rotary Foundation)




Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
