We made this video recently about the strategic partnership between Rotary and UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education.
UNESCO-IHE is the only international water management graduate school in the world. Rotary is sponsoring up to eight students a year for any of three master of science programs at the institute in Delft, the Netherlands.
For me, this is Rotary at its best. We are combining the knowledge gained by our students at UNESCO-IHE with the Rotary network and Rotary funding, to arrive at sustainable solutions for water management and water sanitation. The first batch of students started their master of science programs in October 2012. We are at the beginning of something very nice. The best is yet to come. We will keep you posted!

Water is so essential to life, everywhere.
