International Community Projects


1. Nepal Rural Education Project    

Rotary Club of Plainsboro along with Rotary International sponsored a rural education project in Nepal helping build local schools as a rehabilitation project post an earthquake. Club spent about $41,000 to renovate the schools in the rural area. 

2. Jaipur Limb 

RCOP had raised funds to support the Mahaveer Hospital in Jaipur, India for the development and distribution of low-cost artificial limbs
The camps were conducted to provide Artificial Limbs to people who are in need of a Limb.

What is the Jaipur Limb? 
It is an artificial leg, developed at the Mahaveer hospital in Jaipur, India. The unique component is the Jaipur foot, a clever combination of wood and various densities of rubber vulcanized into a realistic looking brown foot. The Jaipur limb is hard-wearing and will last for three or four years, longer if worn with a shoe. One of the major differences between the Jaipur technology and western technology is the cost - whereas a western limb will cost between $2,000.00 and $4,000.00, a Jaipur limb can be made and fitted for as little as $35.00.
Since its inception in 2003 Rotary Club of Plainsboro (RCOP) along with other clubs in the then Rotary District 7510 (currently 7475) had already supported more than 3000 amputees to walk.
