[City, Date] — [Your name, city, state/province] from the Rotary club of (Name) is bringing
clean and safe water (please include water project details answering who, what, where, when

“Because more than 1.1 billion people—nearly 20 percent of the world’s population—lack
access to safe, clean drinking water, it is a vital concern today,” said (Name). (Please include
additional quote from a Rotarian regarding this project.)

As an active (Rotarian or Rotary club), (Name) recognizes the importance of safe water
issues, and works to encourage others in the community to support clean water efforts. Many
of Rotary’s water projects provide those in need with safe water close to their homes using
simple, sustainable technology. This philosophy is reflected in Rotary projects of all sizes in
all parts of the world.

Rotary water projects have included the installation of wells in Haiti, the capture of monsoon
rains in India, sanitation systems in Brazil, water management cooperatives in Kenya, coastal
ecology restoration in the Philippines and educational programs on water and the
environment in Belgium. The Trustees of The Rotary Foundation have made clean water one
of three priorities for the Foundation’s major Health, Hunger and Humanity (3-H) Grants.

humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build
goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than
32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.
