The Rotary Foundation supports the work of Rotarians for the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
Providing sustainable access to water and sanitation is one of Rotary’s six Areas of Focus.

Osingo Roof Catchment Water Project

Provide clean water and sanitation to over 1500 students at 4 schools and a clinic.

We provided a reliable source of clean rainwater to the students at four schools and a medical dispensary. The large water tanks made water available to the wider community. At each location we provided new improved latrines and a hand wash station. This directly impacted over 1,500 students and hundreds of patients at the clinic. It also impacted the families of all the students. As soon as the tanks were in place, school attendance and enrollment increased, girls were not missing as much school and the students were spending more time in class. At the clinic they will have more water and they will install a shower for the birthing mothers.
