Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Kenya

Location: Kajiado

Total Budget: $170,000

Areas of Focus: Peacebuilding and conflict prevention, Disease prevention and treatment, Water, sanitation and hygiene, Community economic development

While strife and conflict surrounds us every day, we yearn to resolve our differences and find ways to "get along" and co-exist in in mutually beneficial environments. RC Nairobi Muthaiga North joined the community to refuse to accept conflict as a way of life. Saikeri is located within Kajiado County in Kenya and most of the inhabitants are the "MAA Community". It borders Kiambu County which is inhabited by the Kikuyu Community. Saikeri area has about One Thousand (1,000) households with an average of seven (7) members in each household. These communities have been fighting for surface runoff that had collected in a private farm in Kiambu County. RC Nairobi Muthaiga North members has taken action to address the underlying causes of conflict, poverty and ethnic tension in this community.

We propose to drill a borehole, install solar panel to pump water through renewable energy, erect a stand for the water tanks; build a water kiosk, erect a market shelter areas, put up human shelter at the bus stage, train the communities in micro lending (Table banking) and register community based organizations. This will address the main cause of conflict and provide permanent source of water which will bring peace among these neighbors. The sale of water will also boost the economic well-being of the residents.

Rotary Club of Nairobi Muthaiga North is the principle implementing club who have partnered with other clubs such as Rotary Club of Ridgeways and Rotary Club of Kikuyu; and are searching for an international club to partner with them.

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%.
