Pure Water for the World Global Grant

Kirk Pogge, President of the Colonie-Guilderland Rotary Club discussed Pure Water for the World, a Rotary Cooperating Organization, and the provision of private and community water filters, latrines and education to the children and families of Trojes, Honduras, a joint project of his club and the Rotary Club of Nueva Tegucigailpa, Honduras.  The region is poor, lacking both electricity and safe municipal water.  Simple bio-sand filters reduce turbidity and contamination improving the health of families and their children.  A Rotary Global Grant of $98,000 has been raised.
