U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and Rotary International (RI) are teaming-up to save lives by bringing clean drinking water and basic sanitation to communities in the developing world. The partnership aims to identify, develop and implement joint water and sanitation activities to reduce by half the proportion of people without access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation by 2015. The public-private alliance will leverage the resources of both organizations to implement sustainable, long-term water supply, sanitation, and hygiene projects in three countries: Dominican Republic, Ghana, and the Philippines. Other countries will follow based on the success of these pilot experiences. Alliance activities in each country will be jointly funded by USAID and Rotary International with an expected minimum of $2 million per country in the initial phase.
