Community Response Fund

Community Response Fund – From time to time Connecting Countries receives aid requests from non-partner schools that desperately require assistance related to one or both of the following:
  • Water Collection & Storage
  • Student Hygiene

Without detracting focus from partner schools, the Community Response Fund (CRF) enables Connecting Countries to provide assistance to such schools as a “One-Time Grant” opportunity. The school and Connecting Countries will share project responsibilities and costs through a signed Partnership Agreement.

The CRF builds upon these two existing programs to assist non-partner schools:
  1. Water Harvesting – 10,000 litre water storage tanks are provided to collect and store valued rain water from school roof tops.
  2. Clean Hands – Improved student hygiene through provision of school hand washing stations and liquid hand washing soap.
Essentially, the CRF offers an avenue for the use of surplus funds to be used to aid non-partner schools.
