Update: TAP Water Project Keeps Flowing

IMG-20150828-WA0006Launched as a local-to-global project of the Boone Sunrise Rotary Club, “TAP” was founded with the goal of establishing a water collection facility to improve the quality of life for the community of Bukota, Tanzania.  Rotarian Eunias Ntangeki of Tanzania, recently updated TAP Club co-organizer Jesse Lutabingwa with photos.  Ntangeki reports that the tanks are almost complete.
