The Mayega Water Project Group is making significant progress in gathering key information for a Rotary Club Global Grant application in the middle of next year. The project is being followed as a documentary for Star TV, to be shown in Tanzania later in December.
John and Christine were interviewed, and asked about the potential impact of clean, piped water on the villagers’ lives. The project aims to provide full facilities for the Children’s Centre, toilets for the primary school and sanitation blocks in the village. It is a partnership between the Rotary Clubs of Elgin and Mwanza and Busega District Council. Busega Scotland is playing a facilitation role in bringing the partners together and in ensuring the project is progressing smoothly and purposefully. The council is confident that a piped water supply will reach Mayega by the end of this year.
