WASH Rotary Action Group SPECIAL Newsletter - Oct 2020
Thursday October 15, 2020

This year, three organizations have done an excellent job of creating resources for Global Handwashing Day.
Staff at Global Water 2020 have taken a very unique approach to spreading the word and not the germs, by realizing that during the worst of times, laugher can be healing.

Go to the WASH Rotary Action Group Stories page to see their interesting collection of videos on handwashing from some American Sitcoms, some clever songs on handwashing, examples on tweets you can make, graphics you can use, and resources if you want to get serious.

The official website for the day is GlobalHandwashing.org where there is a collection of resources in many languages.

While there are lots of great resources on this site, one of the most useful is the Planner's Guide to Global Handwashing Day.
The USAID - Water and Sanitation Team is encouraging us to spread the word about handwashing from Oct 8 - 15, 2020. 

They have planned a virtual event featuring speakers from USAID, the Republic of Ghana, and more on Wed., October 14. For more information and to register for this free virtual event Register Here. 
USAID has also put together a wide array of resources and promotional materials, including a social media toolkit.

The Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group (WASRAG) is pleased to consider partnerships with any corporate supporter. Due to the unique attributes of water sources and water provision, acceptance of corporate support does not imply an endorsement of any particular water technology. Rotarians, Rotary clubs, and Rotary partners must evaluate any technology to determine if it is the best solution for the conditions where the program will be implemented. WASRAG can provide guidance about where different technologies work best, but Rotarians and Rotary clubs must make the final decision about how to implement their programs.
