Connect water and communities

The thirst for knowledge isn’t quenched by a functioning water system – rather, it’s quenched by a community’s capability of maintaining their water system. “…the moment when we don’t have to worry about clean water, we can focus on goals for education, health and the future of our communities…” were sentiments from a capacity building workshop for target water committee members, held at Labasa, Vanua Levu in early October this year.

Freshwater is an essential yet threatened resource dependent on rainfall collection and extraction of limited ground-water lens reserves. We work closely with Department of Water and Sewerage, Ministry of Health, Environment Health Unit and Commissioners’ office via its provincial administrators to assist with mechanics of rural water use guidelines, sanitation and hygiene. RPW water projects with communities ultimately address water security for over 60,000 people since inception.

We acknowledge the valuable support from Rotary International, our corporate sponsors Vodafone and Fiji Water, development partners, Australian government through Fiji Community Development Program and NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade Aid Program via Rotary NZ World Community Service Limited.

We are at last stages of completing projects for the year before we begin reflecting and revisit communities we have supported for the past 2 years to evaluate our role in bringing safe water to their homes.  More updates later…
