The Rotary Water Barrel

In Africa and developing countries around the world, women and children carry their own weight in water, in dirty jerry cans and containers, not just from a local pump (a few hundred yards away) but sometimes over 6 miles or even further, just to survive. The Rotary Water Barrel is the INSTANT solution!

DG Elva Heyge Addresses Club
On November 7th Elva Heyge our District Governor (DG) addressed our Club.  She opened with comments about what inspired her to commit her time to Rotary. It was an encounter with a Youth Exchange Student, before and after a youth exchange to Brazil that led her to go there on a Friendship Exchange.  While there she learned of a potential humanitarian project but it was too large to fund solely by her Club.  However, not to be daunted, she applied for and was successful in obtaining Rotary Foundation funding which made the project a reality.  The end result provided a tangible benefit to more than 400 children & their families in Brazil. For these reasons, our DG is a strong proponent of Youth Exchange, Friendship Exchange and the Rotary Foundation. DG Elva Heyge seen above with President Marg Chisholm.
