Water is Life

ACCESS TO SAFE WATER and sanitation is a fundamental necessity of life and a declared human right. Water is vital for sustainable development – from health and nutrition, to gender equity and economics. With our growing population, rapidly developing global economy and the effects of climate change placing ever-increasing demands on accessible, safe water sources, it is imperative we focus our efforts on addressing water-related challenges. Rotarians, Rotaractors and Interactors from across our regions are joining forces to implement sustainable water and sanitation solutions across the globe.
