Rotary Club of Pleasanton Partners with RC in Ghana
The Rotary Club of Pleasanton has partnered with RC Accra East in Ghana on this Water & Sanitation, Hygiene (WASH) Project, to create a bathroom facility at Agbodekor Primary School in Attiavi, located in the Volta Region.
They will construct a 12 toilet  & 5 sink facility for the 500 students & staff, who at present have no bathroom facilities. This Club 2 Club Project will reduce sanitation illnesses, improve school attendance & retention, improve hygiene & cleanliness, and improve the overall sanitation within the village of Attiavl. (Only 15% of Ghanians have toilets in their homes & there are no public toilets.)
Our club is partnering with them for $10,000 while 2 other local Rotary Clubs are contributing $3,647, and the RC Accra East is contributing $4,100, totaling $17,747. The estimate for completion of the project is 4 months.
