In December, 2006, our club joined with the Pune Tilak Road Club in Pune India in a project to provide household water filters to approximately 40 more households in the village of Bhukum near Pune, India. A member of our club met with representatives of the Prabodh company and provided club funds to subsidize the purchase of 40 filters, for distribution in Bhukum early in 2007. Residents pay half the cost of the filters, so they are invested in the success of the program. These filters are distributed through a community self-help group that the Pune club supports that includes medical, computer literacy and micro-finance operations. Here Rotarian Ted Nesse of the Stillwater Sunrise club, and Dileep Kanhere, president of the Pune Tilak Road Rotary club present a filter to one of the recipients. On March 1, 2007, a member of our club visited Bhukum to celebrate the distribution of the 40 water filters.
