When people have access to clean water and sanitation, waterborne diseases decrease, children stay healthier and attend school more regularly, and mothers can spend less time carrying water and more time helping their families.
Through water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs, Rotary’s people of action mobilize resources, form partnerships, and invest in infrastructure and training that yield long-term change.
March is Water Sanitation and Hygiene month throughout the Rotary world.

In 2017, Squamish Rotary partnered with the Rotary Club of Nairobi Industrial Area to develop a safe water supply at the Hosanna Children's Home, an orphanage in Kenya.
The project included the installation of solar panels to provide an electical supply for the water pumps and the school buildings.
