12 Rotary Club of Deonar RI Dist 3140 Chartered 9 th Mar 1987 Project – RWH & Drinking Water History Water scarcity is a growing problem both in quality & quantity to the city, state, country & world: Serious decline in underground water table due to uncontrolled & over consumption Insufficient municipal water supply, capacities of the reservoirs inadequate to cater to growing population in cities To worsen matters – we face erratic monsoons, poor infrastructure, defective delivery systems Two focus areas for schools Inadequate supply of water in toilets causing decline in basic hygiene & sanitation Lack of clean drinking water to school children Project Idea Construction of Rain Water Harvesting Systems to catch the run-off of rain water from roof tops and terraces of the school buildings. This system consists of tanks, pumps, sumps, collection, filter, storage units and will provide: relatively clean and free source of water a source of water at the point where it is needed owner-operated and managed units a socially acceptable and environmentally responsible idea to promotes self-sufficiency and water resource conservation concept a simple, flexible technology that is easy to maintain a non labor intensive, cost saving system for construction, operation and maintenance In addition an RO (Reverse-osmosis) plant can further purify the collected water to make it safe for human consumption. This system consists of RO plant, pipes, and water dispensing unit Methodology Municipal schools offer both sufficient land area as well as terrace area ideal for RWH system Target is 10 Schools in the Chembur-Deonar area The Club has already covered 9 schools (non-municipal) and this will enhance the existing coverage areas Installation work will be carried out after due permissions and licenses obtained. Work will be awarded after due diligence to competent contractors, Club will ensure its operation from year to year including maintenance & replacement costs Project Cost for 10 schools Total project cost x 10 schools = INR 18 lacs (US$ 31,000) Water and sanitation

13 Rotary Club of Deonar RI Dist 3140 Chartered 9 th Mar 1987 Project – Training of Famers History Over the last two decades we have adopted a group of villages in the Karjat Taluka Have installed 5 Rotary Community Corps in these villages Undertaken projects for construction of toilet blocks, bore wells, check dams, drinking water systems as well as supporting the schools with books, furniture and infrastructure. Next project is to establish a local Community Centre Difficulties A failed or erratic monsoon Dire consequence as the farmer is forced to fold up his business by selling it in distress Worse is that he may end his life under mounting debt, family pressure and hopelessness Lack of credit, awareness & guidance, innovations not reaching them, supply of quality seeds, pesticides, farm implements, supply of electricity, erratic release of water from reservoirs, lack of market & commercial understanding, groundwater availability Lack of publicity of Govt. subsidy schemes among rural poor, particularly illiterate villagers Project Idea A training and knowledge sharing program for a group of farmers belonging to these villages adequately addressing these elements The use of relatively low cost and technologically advanced practices would be greatly benefitted by visiting this region and getting an opportunity to learn the skills, practices, methods & technology used. Bring this information back home to effectively convert and develop the similarly arid regions of Karjat and grow it into a model village like Israel Methodology 5-7 Farmers selected from our RCC region and an accompanying Rotarian Need a Partner Club to host the VTT farmers to support a practical training program for 15-20 days and use of Inter-Government schemes between Israel & India to assist in the program. Our Club will then ensure that when the VTT farmers return to India, we will arrange to impart this knowledge to the other farmers in the region under a well-conceived structure and supervision of our Club. Similar exchange of a professional team from your region could be arranged Opportunity to mutually share these agricultural concepts with each other This program is conceived to be an annual exchange between the 2 partner Clubs for the next 3-5 years and use each annual trip to focus on specific aspects of agricultural development Project Cost for 5 farmers + 1 team leader (6 persons) Total Project Cost = INR 10 lacs ( US$ 17,500) Economic and community development
