HANWASH (Haiti National Clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Strategy)

Submitted by: Kathryn Fahy, Iowa Great Lakes Rotary

Project Owner: Rotary District 7020

Project Description:
By 2030, HANWASH (Haiti National Clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Strategy) has the audacious goal of providing clean potable water and satisfactory sanitation to the entire nation of Haiti. But with half of Haiti’s water and sanitation infrastructure simply not functioning, the country is an out-of-control recipient of aid funding – most of which sadly only focuses on creating relief by temporary fixes to the problems that exist, rather than building the systems necessary for the country to function. HANWASH is focused on a sustainable solution to resolve their water and sanitation dilemma and serve as a blueprint for other developing countries as well.
