This is a major project undertaken annually requiring on-going financial support from Rotary Clubs matched by a Global Grant. 408 (Taveuni)         

004 TONGA - CHILDREN WITH ACUTE DISABILITIES
The needs of the disabled are very much neglected in Tonga. They receive no financial support. Many families with severely disabled family members live in deplorable conditions. Mango Tree Centre supports 1,000 disabled people, giving dignity to those that are most vulnerable. 004 (Papanui/Nuku'alofa)

313 TONGA – IMPROVING LIVELIHOODS, HEALTH and ENVIRONMENT
This activity will establish tree planting initiatives, increase communities' understanding of land and coastal protection and land/crop/livestock management through the raising of vegetable crops and protection of livestock such as poultry from predation and to prevent damage to crops, for example, by pigs. 313 (Nuku’alofa)

402 FIJI - ROTARY PACIFIC WATER FOR LIFE (RPWFL)                        
Providing safe water supply and access to improved basic sanitation and hygiene for rural households and schools transforms lives, especially those of women and children. It also builds the community’s resilience. In times of flooding, robust water and sanitation infrastructure reduces the risk of drinking water contamination arising from seepage from damaged facilities. During long dry spells, water stress burdens a community. Over the past 12 years, RPWFL has been responsible for the construction of over 303 projects to bring piped water supplies to rural Fijians. These projects have benefited at least 75,850 villagers. 402 (Suva North)

305 TANZANIA - MWIKA DAIRY, MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN MILK PRODUCTION
Support the livelihoods of 250 subsistence farmers. The flow on from this Rotary activity together with the Rotary Market is bringing a community out of poverty, enabling better education and health for all through improved livelihoods and standard of living. Donate a cow, a biogas digester, a milk container or help improve the dairy production operation. 305 (Multi Club)
