Rotary partners with USAID for clean water

Published 2:04 pm Friday, September 22, 2017

The Rotary International-USAID International H2O Collaboration is a partnership between Rotary and the U.S. Agency for International Development that supports lasting, positive change to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) initiatives.

This partnership combines the vast network of Rotary volunteers with the expertise of USAID to influence communities and policymakers to solve seemingly unsolvable problems and bring about lasting change through education and advocacy.

Since 2009, Rotary and USAID have partnered to improve access to clean water and sanitation in developing countries, working on continuous improvement while sharing experience with other philanthropic and humanitarian organizations.

In 2015, the collaboration committed $4 million each to Ghana, Uganda and Madagascar, with each partner providing half of the funds needed. Rotary seeks to raise $200,000 for each country by 2018 as part of its $2 million per country commitment.

One more way Rotary is working with others to improve our world.
