Program:
WATER FOR SCHOOLS
     Patty Hall spoke about the Water for Schools matching grant to which we are a contributing Club. Led by the White Bear Lake Rotary Club, the project will provide borehole wells for three primary schools in Iganga District, Uganda. The WBL Rotary Club enlisted 16 Clubs from multiple Districts (13 in 5960) to complete a $23,397 District Grant.  H2O For Life will provide additional financial support.
     The project will provide clean water for the 2400 students in the 3 schools and their families. Handwashing stations and hygiene education are included. There will be a fund for maintaining the wells and training community management teams.
     Ed. Note: Longtime NBMV Club members will recall being involved with Highview Middle School when H2O for Life was started back in the day. The program was featured in an issue of The Rotarian Magazine.  Kudos to Patty Hall and all who started and sustained that amazing NGO!  Patty and Edeth are pictured below.
