Rotary Club of Fareham raised enough funds to build a Sand Dam to
provide access to fresh water & aid food production in a community for up to 50 years. It will help the community to earn an income and additional income can lead to better health & better education. Instead of one dam, we funded 50% of Wisuka Dam (£13.8k), enabling the balance to be accessed from other donors.
Kew Gardens Rotary, coordinate all Sand Dam projects.
The project required support of other clubs including the Wessex Group 7 Clubs.
Cost to build (including ancillaries), estimated at $33k = £27.5k.
Kew Gardens Rotary will apply for a Global Grant, from Rotary International. The following clubs raised;
Fareham Rotary - £8,800
Whiteley - £2,500
Portsmouth & Southsea - £2,500
DDF - £10,000
Global Grant - £8,000
Total - £31,800
