Jill Duerig gave an overview and update on HANWASH. It is a long term National Collaboration program to bring potable wanter, sanitation and hygiene to Haiti residents. They provide not only wells but the infrastructure to maintain working wells throughout the country. Unfortunately due to the lack of stability, many of the working wells are broken into and do not function. There is a 20 year plan to bring potable water to the country of Haiti. Rotary will not quit!
Next week we welcome Kristen Thomas, Director of Partnerships for Cristo Rey De La Salle High School in Oakland. Cristo Rey students are underserved Hispanic, Asian American and African American. The school provides work-study programs. 100% of the graduates attend college. Learn their secret to success.
