Now more than ever, access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene is critical to health of families around the world. That’s why Rotarians’ commitment to provide safe water, hygiene and sanitation products and facilities to all communities continues to grow.
Founded in 2007, the mission of the WASH Rotary Action Group is to provide human, technical, and financial support to clubs and districts that are seeking to help communities to gain sustainable access to water, sanitation, and hygiene. With the global network of technical experts and WASH-minded supporters, the Action Group has been successfully fulfilling its mission.
The WASH Rotary Action Group is set out to robustly support clubs and districts in planning and implementing high impact sustainable project in the current Rotary year as well. The group started to host the webinar series “Global Grants, Nuts and Bolts”, focused on WASH in Schools, in October and will be hosting the third session that focuses on monitoring and evaluation on 14 and 15 January. Representatives from UNICEF, The Rotary Foundation, Centre for Affordable Water & Sanitation Technologies (CAWST), and Rotarians from the Tocoa, Honduras WASH in Schools Program will be featured to introduce the basics of monitoring and evaluation within the WASH in Schools context.
