Water and Sanitation

More than 2.5 billion people lack access to adequate sanitation facilities. At least 3,000 children die each day from diarrheal diseases caused by unsafe water. Our projects give communities the ability to develop and maintain sustainable water and sanitation systems and support studies related to water and sanitation. (July 2014)

The Foundation enables Rotarians to ensure that people have sustainable access to water and sanitation by:

  1. Providing equitable community access to safe water, improved sanitation, and hygiene
  2. Strengthening the ability of communities to develop, fund and maintain sustainable water and sanitation systems
  3. Supporting programs that enhance communities’ awareness of the benefits of safe water, sanitation and hygiene
  4. Supporting studies for career-minded professionals related to water and sanitation
