Project Description

Region: Africa

Country: Kenya

Location: Chwele

Total Budget: $30,000

Area of Focus: The environment

The project seeks to provide solar lanterns to homesteads and families cut off from the grid in the Chwele surburb. Most of the inhabitants of this locality are families of internally displaced persons (IDPs). We want to provide portable solar lanterns to 500 families for use by their children in studying and reading and lighting.

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%.
