The global water crisis is a priority issue for Rotary International. The small, but robust Rotary Club, Peninsula Sunrise from Redwood City, believes that recent technology breakthroughs in water purification can provide a big advantage. One of our primary benefactors, GE, takes the challenge to heart.
The first week of September, 2014, H2OpenDoors brought ten students and two teachers from Woodside High's Green Academy and Redwood High's REAL program to central Mexico. They installed a SunSpring water purification system in a very poor district in Cd. Guzman, Jalisco State, and then went to Centro Fox to a private leadership conference with Vicente Fox, the former President of Mexico.
This presentation, H2OpenDoors So Far, was made to the Rotary eClub of Silicon Valley in May of 2015. It is a comprehensive session, 36 minutes in length, about the project and how easy it is to implement. Safe, daily drinking water to the poorest on Earth is possible and fully explained.
