A Message from District Governor William Taylor Biddle, Jr.
Clean Water and Sanitation is foundational to good health. Moreover, clean water and sanitation is a right. When individuals have access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene, they lead healthier and more productive lives.
Clean water and sanitation is one of Rotary’s priorities. It’s one of the six areas of focus for Rotary. ROTARY’S TARGET CHALLENGE to develop sustainable water, sanitation, hygiene (WASH), and education projects is being piloted in five countries: Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, India, and Kenya. Globally Rotary is busy:
1 - Strengthening the ability of communities to develop, fund, and maintain sustainable water and sanitation systems.
2 - Providing equitable community access to safe water, improved sanitation, and hygiene.
3 - Supporting programs that enhance communities’ awareness of the benefits of safe water, sanitation, and hygiene.
4 - Supporting career-minded professionals’ studies related to water and sanitation.
5 - Creating tools and resources that facilitate, measure, and enhance high-quality water and sanitation projects worldwide.
Water and Sanitation Hygiene (WASH) will make a difference for many areas because Rotary has made this a priority.
