On Tuesday(9/18/07) the Bozeman Noon Rotary Board of Directors voted to give money ($2500.00 and potentially another $2500.00) toward the next Honduras community water filtration system in the Danli, Honduras area. There are several other verbal commitments for money from other Rotary Clubs in Montana.

The Bozeman Noon Club will submit the total of local grant money to the Montana District and to Rotary International for consideration of matching grants. This matching grant process can more than double the local club contributions. The Montana District and Rotary International consider bring drinking water to areas without suitable water as one of their highest priorities.

The Danli Club has been actively supporting water projects funded by Rotary and Pure Water for the World for more that 5 years. They provide project administration and they do water testing for the various systems already in place. The Danli Club will join the Montana District in support of the next community water filtration system project.

The cost estimate for a community water filter system is $24,000. A system of this size will provide drinkable water to over 1000 people.
