Rotary Club of Ames invites your Club to be a partner in a Water and Sanitation Global Grant in Tanzania.


In the spirit of the new Future Vision initiative of Rotary International the Rotary Club of Ames invites your Rotary Club to be an active partner in the planning and implementation of a new Global Grant focusing on Water and Sanitation in Tanzania. The spirit of Future Vision includes partnering clubs, initiating larger grants (goal $200,000), having greater impact, having measureable outcomes and being sustainable over time. The vision also includes the creation of Vocational Training Teams (VTT) and integrating student scholars with the global grant. The Tanzania Rotary Clubs of Same and Moshi-Mwanga in new Rotary District 9211 are eager to work with Rotary Clubs of District 6000. The time frame is to build partnerships and develop specific grant proposals with the TZ Rotary Clubs between now and March 31, so everything will be in place for project implementation July 1. 2013.


Please read the attached brochure for more information about Future Vision and the Rotary Club of Ames Invitation for your Club to be a partner in this exciting initiative. Members of the Rotary Club of Ames Global Grants Committee are prepared to visit your Club to discuss various opportunities for your club and club members to become involved with the many aspects of the project. If interested please contact Gerald Klonglan, Chair, Rotary Club of Ames World Service and Global Grants committee  or call 515-232-9973. 


What is unique about Tanzania? In 2010 Rotary International selected 100 Rotary Districts world wide to test Future Vision ideas. District 9200 of which Tanzania is a part was selected. On July 1 2012 Rotary International selected 10 pilot districts to initiate a one year Project Enhancement Process (PEP) in the Water and Sanitation area of focus to develop large scale global grants. District 9200 including Tanzania was again selected. Dave Fox, Rotary Club of Ames, has been a member of the Water and Sanitation Rotary Action Group that developed the Project Enhancement Process (PEP). Dave brings his knowledge and network to aid us in the development of our Global Grant.
