Phase VI 2012-2015

Phase VI, funded by a coalition of 16 northern California Rotary Clubs, Moshi Rotary Club, Rotary District 5160, and The Rotary Foundation, includes several components, all focused on Mwika:  Renovating and upgrading the water distribution pipeline system emanating from springs high on Mt. Kilimanjaro; Planting 100,000 seedlings in a deforested region of Mt. Kilimanjaro; Improving infrastructure, medical transport, and staff training at three community-based medical clinics; Establishing computer laboratories at five secondary schools and a community library; Expanding an agriculture peer-mentoring program through which high-performing small farmers encourage best-practices with low performing farmers; Enhancing sustainability of past projects through additional training, manuals, and other new instructional materials.


Implementation of these projects is expected to be completed in early 2015.
