The Rotary Club of Asheville South and its partners plan to bring irrigation water to subsistence farmers and family gardeners in eight villages of Western Rwanda.
Because farmers can grow only during the rainy season, they are limited in their ability to feed their families and derive income. They live in poverty and a perpetual food deficit.
Those that attempt to farm year-round send women and children on the back-breaking three km trip to fetch water from a mountain source. Of course, while doing this, the children are not in school.
You can help by joining us for drinks, dinner and live music 6:00 PM Thursday May 25th at the Biltmore Park Clubhouse. The suggested donation is $50 per person. Space is limited, so complete the form on our contact page ASAP and bring a check to the event. Thank you!
