The Boreholes for Tanzania project

The Boreholes for Tanzania

Access to clean drinking water is the most basic human right.


For some women and children living in Tarime, Tanzania, this can mean walking up to 8 kms daily to collect water.

This puts a lot of strain on the children's educational opportunities, increases the health burden and severely impacts on economic development.


The Rotary Clubs of Central Launceston and South Launceston are currently hosting a project with the goal to install up to 20 water bores in Tarime, bringing clean water to up to 50,000 people.

The Rotary Club of Devonport North are aiming to raise a $12,500 contribution which is the cost of one borehole.


The overall project aim, by the Rotary Club of Central Launceston is to raise $250,000 to fund 20 boreholes. To date, approx. $180,000 has already been donated.
