Bhavnagar is a city of the Saurashtra region of the Gujarat state of India to the west of the Gulf of Khambhat with the population of around 6,00,000. The world's largest ship-breaking yard, Alang is located 50 km away.
Bhavnagar has the wet monsoon season during which the city receives around 550 millimeters (22 in) of rain on average. Bhavnagar is facing water quality problem as well as drinking water shortage. Ground water in Bhavnagar region requires precautionary measures as it is located near seashore.
Rotary Club of Bhavnagar has started Amruttam - Water Harvesting & Recharging Project since last 6 years to overcome the issues related to pure drinking water as well as ground water level in the entire Bhavnagar City.
We are looking for a Club partner. Click here to pledge support for this project. Recording a pledge will make you the Primary International Partner for this project.
This project needs to receive some pledges to go to the next level. Please check the "Financing" tab to see the list of current pledges. Once the amount pledged is equal to the project budget, the status of the project will be automatically changed to "Fully Pledged". Click here to pledge support for this project.
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%.
