Sand Dam

Fund raised to build a dam in Kenya

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
