BENEFITING: Ocala Rotary Foundation Inc
Our goal is to drill a solar powered well for a primary school in rural Zimbabwe, Africa -- a country with a very low GDP. This school has 400 students and the closest reliable water is 5 miles away. This water will also allow for the building of concrete structures, increase retention of students and teachers, and improve the sanitation and the well-being of eight surrounding communities. This well has to be solar as there is no nearby electricity.
This project is endorsed by the Rotary Club of Ocala and Rotary District 6970 .
