Thanks to everyone who came out to hear Dr. Ron Denham, Chair Emeritus of the Water & Sanitation Rotarian Action Group, speak about the importance of helping to provide sustainable water and sanitation in areas in need around the world.
Dr. Denham led a captivating talk and spoke to the heart of everyone in the audience. Although much has been done, as of 2015, 700 million people still don't have access to clean water, and 2.4 billion lack proper sanitation. As Dr. Denham put it, "despite investment of billions of dollars and millions of hours, few projects have achieved lasting impact".

The impressive goal set is to have sustainable management of water & sanitation for all by 2030.

The key is sustainability, and Rotary can help by implementing "Bigger Projects, Better Programs and Bolder Initiatives". We need to collaborate with others to come up with the best ways to provide maintainable systems. WASRAG can help find projects, identify potential matching clubs and private sector partners, help with sustainable design practices and more. To learn more, visit
