In the Rotary world, we acknowledge a different theme for each month of the year. March happens to be "Water and Sanitation," which is one of Rotary's seven Areas of Focus. In addition, March 22nd is recognized as World Water Day.
 
When people, especially children, have access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene, they lead healthier and more successful lives.
 
Rotarians don’t just build wells and walk away. Rotary members integrate water, sanitation, and hygiene into education projects. When children learn about disease transmission and practice good hygiene, they miss less school. And they can take those lessons home to their families, expanding our impact.

Rotary International, through the combined actions of individual Rotarians and Rotary Clubs, seeks to assure that all people have adequate access to clean and safe water. The Rotary theme for March, Water and Sanitation, asks us to focus on the life-changing improvements that we can make through these international projects to provide a more readily available and healthy supply of water to all people.
