Busega Scotland has forged very strong links with the Rotary Club of Elgin. Previous news articles have shown the fruits of that relationship, with the construction of a kitchen at Mayega Children’s Centre and standpipes in each of Mayega’s sub-villages.
The next phase of the Mayega Water Project will include toilets at the primary school and other village facilities. This ambitious programme is dependent on a Rotary International Global Grant and Elgin will make an application later in the year.
Global Grants require an in-country Rotary partner, and Igoma Rotary Club have been approached and agreed to join the project. A meeting was held with President Zakaria Lang’o and Projects Co-ordinator Moses Lauwo. Moses is also Assistant Director of the Rotary District, covering Tanzania and Uganda.
Representatives from Igoma will now join the Mayega Water Group, which is the planning and management body responsible for the project. We fervently hope that the Global Grant application will succeed and bring further facilities to the village.
