March is Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Month

Clean water, sanitation, and hygiene education are basic necessities for life.

  • When people have access to clean water, good sanitation, and hygiene, it reduces the spread of diseases, reduces the severity and impact of malnutrition, and reduces the deaths of people in low and middle-income countries.

  • Having clean water, good sanitation, and good hygiene promotes dignity, safety, and quality of life.

  • Providing clean water, sanitation, and hygiene education is one of Rotary’s 7 Areas of Focus
