Clean drinking water for 100 Lebanese public schools

Kids in most public schools in Lebanon do not have access to clean drinking water. Rotary Lebanon has therefore initiated a mega-project to equip all of Lebanon’s 1’200 public schools with water filtration systems and WASH training in 2014.

As part of this overall effort, we have raised funds to equip a total of 100 public schools with water filtration system. The project implementation is managed by our Twin club Tripoli-Cosmopolis.
A first Global Grant for 50 public schools in 2018 for a total amount of USD 179’000. All of these schools have now been equipped, and the project is terminated. 

A second Global Grant for another 50 public schools initiated in 2020 with a budget of USD 183’501 is still in the implementation phase.
The funding for these two grants was provided by a fundraising campaign initiated by PDG Christian Colquhoun of the District 1990, numerous clubs of the District, as well as other Districts and private donors.
