OrganizationRoll Out The Barrel Clean Water Solutions Society
Position Ambassador
Impact Statement Imagine having to walk four or more hours to collect water for your family....
Now imagine doing it each and every day.
That is the sad reality for so many families in many parts of Africa.
The responsibility usually falls to the children: children who should and want to be in school.
We have a solution: a Rotary rolling water barrel.
Description You are an advocate for empowering women and children in the developing world.
You do so by spreading the word (brochure) about, and fundraising for, ROTB.
You spread the word and fund-raise simply by going somewhere/anywhere while pulling a barrel.
Hand out brochures, collect donations, raise an eyebrow, and maybe a laugh.
Training Details While pulling a barrel you will be stopped and asked "What's it for?"
And you will say:-
"Imagine carrying water from the well in a jerry-can, doing it four times a day, 3km each way."
"Now imagine how much easier it is with a Rotary rolling water barrel."
"$60 means a barrel and water filter can be delivered to a needy family in Africa."
Working Conditions Walking on sidewalks: to work/school/downtown/around your subdivision. Where you go is up to you.
You will be provided with the barrel, collection bag and brochures.
