.The mission of Rotary District 5450 Water Task Force is to encourage and support the 58 clubs in our District to assist Rotary Clubs in other countries in developing, funding and completing clean water projects. Funds are raised by clubs within the District through various fund-raising activities, private donations, applying for grants and partnerships with schools, churches and businesses. These funds are matched by District and the Rotary International Foundation. 100% of all funds go to support projects. Administrative expenses are borne by member donations to the Rotary Foundation.
Our goal is to explore ways in which organizations such as the PEER Group, Blue Planet Run, Global Run and Rotary can work togther to alleviate the world's water and sanitiation problems.
