2013 - 2014 Rotary eClubOne International Projects
Board of Directors of Rotary eClub One recently approved projects for the
2013-2014 year. Each project is championed by an eClub One member and involves
collaboration with other Rotary Clubs.
Water & Sanitation Project
in South-Eastern Nigeria
This project, proposed by ‘Buchi Akpeh, will benefit the Umueze-Anam community in
South-Eastern Nigeria. Until fall of 2012, the community had depended on the
water from Rivers Anambra & Ezu, which border the community. Though these
water sources had not been safe for drinking or cooking, they were further
polluted during the flooding of southern Nigerian communities in fall of 2012. The
project includes: drilling
of a borehole; provision of a solar panel to power pumping of water from the
borehole; provision of water storage tanks and erecting of platform for the
tanks and reticulation to provide multiple outlets for taking water from the borehole.
Rotary eClub One will commit $2,500 to this project. The project will also
receive a possible matching grant of $2,500 from the District (D-5450/D-9140),
a grant of $1,700 from the local RC Awka GRA and $5,500 from the Umueze-Anam
Pacific Desk and Book Aid in
This project, proposed by Past President Chris Joscelyne, will benefit the Vanuatu
community. Vanuatu has the lowest literacy rate in the Asia-Pacific region with
only 37% of population being able to read and write. The Vanuatu schools are under-resourced with
lack of desks, chairs, books and writing materials. Rotary will fill some of
this gap by dealing direct with needy schools. The Vanuatu government has
approved this project. They will
organize the construction of 1,000 robust school desks in Vanuatu, supervised
by Rotarians, the provision of age-specific books written in English and French
and the acquisition of writing materials for reading comprehension classes.
This project will also receive support from the Rotary Club of Kerikeri (New
Zealand) and the Rotary Club of Sydney CBD (Australia). Rotary eClub One will commit $5,000 to this
tanks for the Kathyoli Primary School, Kenya
This project, proposed by Jane Fletcher, will benefit pupils at the Kathyoli primary school
in Kenya. There is inadequate water supply at this school, resulting in poor
sanitation and hygiene. Currently, the school has one water tank and this
project will provide two additional water tanks (10,000 liter each). An inadequate water supply also means that
sanitation and hygiene levels are poor. These
tanks will allow the school to harvest and store rainwater. “Build Africa” will
provide training to the school community to ensure the tanks are used properly
and safely, and that the guttering and water harvesting system is properly
installed. Jane plans to visit Kenya and the village in 2014 to assist with the
project implementation and evaluate the results. The
local Rotary Club of Machakos will be actively involved in this project. Rotary
eClub One will contribute $3,600 covering the entire cost of the project.
Guatemala Literacy Project
This project, proposed by Joni Ellis of RC Summit County, will serve the indigenous peoples
in the Western Highlands of Guatemala, where you find one of the lowest
literacy rates in the Western Hemisphere. The GLP
Global Grant consists of 3 parts: providing literacy training and reading
books in 25 elementary schools; implementing 7 literacy-strengthening textbook
projects and establishing 1 computer center.
Rotary eClub One will commit $2,000 to this project. The project will also receive support from the Summit
County RC (Colorado). About 30 Rotarians from North America and the Caribbean
will go on a 10 day project trip to Guatemala in January/February 2014. If you
interested, please visit www.guatemalaliteracy.org or contact Joni Ellis (RC Summit
County, CO) 970 389-3255 for additional details.
Malingua Pamba Water,
Sanitation and Health Project
project, proposed by Pam Gilbert,
will serve the indigenous Kichwa living in the watershed area of Malingua
Pamba-Quinta Tunguiche (MP-QT) living in the Andes of Ecuador (9,500’ –
12,000’). Rotary and Engineers Without Borders (EWB) – Denver Chapter have been
working with these communities, numbering around 1,500 people, since 2006 in
various projects along with Centro Educativo La Minga, Inc. (CELM). This project will address
improvements/expansion in the existing MP-QT potable water system, explore the
use of drip watering, initiation of erosion control, provide modified rocket
stoves, and courses on how to properly use them. Rotary eClub One will commit $5,000
to this project.
