This will be a Rotary Global Grant Project of the Rotary Club of Downtown Los Angeles, the Rotary Club of Suna Migori, Kenya and other partner organizations. Most people get their water directly from Lake Victoria. This is contaminated with water borne parasites and diseases. Good hygiene is not widely practiced due to lack of clean water and ignorance of good practices. Open defecation is common, which contaminates the lake and spreads parasites and disease.This project will build the water system, train the entrepreneurs, train the Community Health Provider and provide 12 months of ongoing support by Aqua Clara Kenya. Each system will extract raw water from the lake with a solar powered pump and pump the raw water to two elevated 10,000 liter tanks. The raw water will then be filtered through micropore filters located in a water kiosk by gravity. The clean water will be dispensed directly from a Water ATM. The capacity of each system will be 20,000 L per day.The Rotary Clean Water System will belong to the community and will be located at a community owned school or dispensary. The system will be leased to an entrepreneur operator. The revenue from water sales will pay for maintenance, a Community Health Provider, community benefits and support a future system in another nearby community.
