WATER & SANITATION
CMIRC has been approached by the Rotary Club of Fig Garden, Fresno, California to be the local partner on a Global Grant, "Thailand Water and Sanitation Project GG-2233068". It is anticipated that other Rotary clubs in the US will contribute and the Integrated Tribal Development Program is the Cooperating Organization with Executive Director Michael Mann.
Together with District 5230 clubs and Rotary Foundation Global Funding, Chiang Mai International Rotary Club, the Lanna Foundation, the Integrated Tribal Development Foundation (ITDF) and the Rotary Club of Fig Garden as international partner, the proposed project will help bring clean water and sanitation to the hill tribes of Northern Thailand. The project is planned to last for three years and will install clean water systems in some 10 remote villages in the Mae Chaem and Omkoi areas as a lead-in to other developments. In some cases, this involves installing over 20 kilometers of piping.
