Clean Water & Food Security Initiative
District Governor Scott is challenging all Rotary Clubs in our District to Make A Difference by taking action to improve Clean Water and Food Security for people in need around the globe or in our own backyard. Did you know:
844 million people in the world – 1 in 10 – do not have clean water.
2.3 billion people in the world – 1 in 3 – do not have a decent toilet.
289,000 children under 5 die each year due to diarrheal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation.
$24 is all it takes to provide 1 person with safe water
Nearly 800 million people live on less than $1.90 a day.
795 million people – or 1 in 9 people in the world – do not have enough to eat.
60% of the world’s hungry people are women and girls
The District is offering funds-matching incentives through the 2017-18 District Grants and Global Grants programs as described in the program details and application form:
2017-2018 Gov Scott McAdam's Clean Water & Food Security Initiative.
When Rotarians get involved, amazing things happen! We hope each Club will consider the possibilities and act on this opportunity.
