Rotary Club supporting SWG!

Open defecation in rural Indonesia causes contamination of water sources leading to disease, high children mortality, and stunted growth. In this video, the Rotary Club was appealing to its members to raise funds so that they can apply for a Global Grant of USD 45,000 … and they succeeded in July 2021!

The fund will support SWG installation for a rural community (~100 households) in the Citarum area (West Java), one of the world’s most polluted river shed areas. Combined with hygiene educational programs and further research, this project will act as a springboard for the SWG to go national and to bring us closer to our goal of bringing lifesaving sanitation to all Indonesian villagers before 2030.

A call to action: help our neighbours

COVID has hit our neighbours in Indonesia hard, especially the people of Bintan, who depend on tourism.

But we can help, and there is no better way to do so than to bring lifesaving water and sanitation systems.

Watch this video to see how … and visit to join the action!
