Rotary Club wants all drops collected
Abisae Maeda, Arusha (Tanzania) 12 April 2010
Rotary Club-Holland is supporting both financially and physically an ambitious project in Arusha, northern Tanzania, to build a huge tank that will store water for a better controlled and sustainable use of it.
The initial study was conducted by the Tanzanian government, in its effort to meet the 2015 Millennium Development Goals deadline. By that year, majority of the population should have access to safe, clean water.
According to the government’s study, 3000 new water points have to be built every year, especially in rural areas. The reality however, is that only a few hundreds are being built every year, which pushes to fear that the deadline might not be met.
