Project Description

Region: Eastern Europe

Country: USA

Location: Turkey

Total Budget: $39,000

Areas of Focus: Maternal and child health, Basic education and literacy, Community economic development

We will provide 50 Jersey Cows to 25 women who are from 5 different rural areas around Samsun Turkey.

Women who are widow or have a family members with disability will be given top priority. Additionally, along with participants, other livestock farmers in the region will be trained on animal care and feeding. The project seeks to train livestock farmers about marketing and operating a farm business.

The project will help in:

Building the capacity of local leaders, organizations, and networks to support economic development in poor communities; Developing opportunities for productive work and improving access to sustainable livelihoods; Empowering marginalized communities by providing access to economic opportunities and services; Addressing gender or class disparities that prevent populations from obtaining productive work and accessing markets and financial services; Empowering communities to develop environmental and natural resource conservation skills for economic gain; Developing and supporting community-based basic emergency preparedness services to improve economic resilience;

Samsun Atakum municipality is responsible to carry out the project. The project will be managed by a manager and 3 veterinaries from Atakum municipality and an agricultural engineer from Samsun Karadeniz Rotary.

Timeline: 2020-12-01 to 2021-06-01

Our club also completed other projects in Samsun, Vezirköprü, Bahçekonak village between 2002-2003.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

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%.
