Identified needs through include: Very low household incomes; Inability to pay school fees for children and therefore high school drop-outs; Inability to meet basic household needs; Environmental degradation arising from cutting down trees to burn charcoal.The Lukaaka Water for Production Project will enable about 1500 farmers in Lukaaka, Mawale and Semuto Villages engage in agriculture during the dry season and boost their family income. The farmers in this derive their livelihood from vegetable and fruit farming. Market prices in the main harvest season are very low but if they were to have produce in the dry season when the products are scarce and the prices are quite high, they would increase their household incomes significantly and would be able to afford better medical care, pay school fees for their children and afford basic necessities in the homes. Having a reliable source of income would also reduce on the charcoal burning in the dry season in the area which is quite rampant and has degraded the environment.The activities for which the project funds will be used will include:Topographical studies and valley dam site clearance; Construction of the valley tank; and Establishment of farmer Field Schools. The project is to be implemented between May 2019 and December 2020.The role of host Rotarians will include: i) Mobilisation of farmer training; ii)Monitoring to confirm that water is efficiently used for production; iii) Linking farmers to market for their produce;. iv)Monitoring and guiding the work of the Water for Production Committee. The role that international Rotarians will have in this project will include: i)Resource mobilisation; and ii)On-spot guidance during visits.

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%.
