History Logs

Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Mumbai

Total Budget: $33,250

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Water, sanitation and hygiene

Needs identified: Two suburbs of Powai (Central Mumbai) named as Gautam Nagar and Park Site are areas where mostly the under privileged reside. They are small daily wagers working in shops and houses(as maids) in the nearby townships. They live in temporary makeshift shanties. The common toilet facilities are insufficient to cater to this large population of 0.1 to 0.15 million.The lack of toilet has also triggered the spread of Covid 19.

Social workers from these areas have often shared with Rotary the sad plight of these unfortunate people & requested Rotary to help provide 'community toilet'.

Project: Toilet Blocks(Male and female separate) will be built one each at the identified places.

Timeline:Six months from the time project funds are made available.

Use of project funds: To build toilet blocks at the two identified places. Each block will have 4 toilets for females and 4 toilets for males.

Involvement of members: Project team will be formed to coordinate the entire construction activity and post monitoring to ensure proper use and maintenance.

Funds needed: Approximately $33250(thirty three thousand two hundred fifty dollars)

Amount Requested from 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%.
