Earlier this month, Rotary members from Pakistan and India joined together to provide clean drinking water to two government-run schools in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

The project is supporting education and providing clean water.

After researching locations, my club was joined by members of the Rotary Club of Quilon West End, Kerala, India, in our project “Safe Drinking Water for Every Child.” We installed 65-liter electric water coolers and water purification systems at the girls elementary school at Shoukat Saddar and Islamia High School No. 4. Neither school had access to safe drinking water before our project, completed on 14 May.

We our extremely thankful to the president and board of directors of the Quilon West End Rotary Club for their support. Through Rotary, we our bridging borders and giving girls a chance at a better future. Every child deserves  access to education without having to worry about getting sick from the water.
