Installation of a Potable Water Supply System at Rosario National High School

The scarcity of potable water particularly the seacoast town of Rosario has been a perennial problem for one of our adopted schools, Rosario National High School (RNHS) & its community. Students & local residents have to manually pump salty water from dilapidated shallow wells to be used only for washing & cleaning. Potable water has to be purchased from nearby water refilling stations.

Water related diseases are rampant in the community. Through the initiative of Rotary Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone (RC CEPZ), a Potable Water Project aims to provide clean & potable water through a purification water system to benefit the RNHS populace & its community.

Our match club in Korea, Rotary Club of West Icheon, District 3600-Korea has partnered with us to install a water station with a filtration system to make the water potable. Raw water supply from Maynilad Water System will be used.

There will be three phases to complete this project. Phase I, construction and installation of the potable water supply system. Phase II will be the creation of a management system to operate and maintain the project. The school's Parent/Teacher/ Community President shall be entrusted to secure and maintain the system. The sponsored Interact Club of Rosario National High School may be trained to document the operation of the project. Phase III is a livelihood  program  involving the study of a possible sale of the produce where 100% of the proceeds will go to the maintenance and operation of the project.
