Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)
The Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Committee projects give communities the ability to develop and maintain sustainable water and sanitation systems and support studies related to water and sanitation. More than 2.5 billion people lack access to adequate sanitation facilities. At least 3,000 children die each day from diarrheal diseases caused by unsafe water.

Rotary has made significant investments in water infrastructure across the world. As of 2012, the Rotary Foundation reported investments totaling approximately $5 million in Honduras alone. Over 90 Rotary-sponsored water systems have been built to date in this country. The level of functionality of these water systems post-construction is unknown.
