David will discuss the work Friendly Water for the World does around the globe. For these clean water projects, he will explain the 7 technologies they employ (BioSand Filters, Rainwater Catchments, MicroFlush Toilets, Non-Fired Soil-Stabilized Bricks, Rocket Stoves, Liquid Non-Palm Oil Soap and Permagardens. Many of these projects are done in concert with assistance from local Rotary Clubs.

The mission of Friendly Water for the World’s is to expand global access to low-cost clean water technologies and information about health and sanitation through knowledge-sharing, training, applied research, community-building, peacemaking, and efforts at sustainability. We empower communities abroad to take care of their own clean water needs, even as we empower people here to make a real difference.

Their vision is of healthy, self-sustaining, empowered, peaceful communities both here and abroad, sharing knowledge with each other, with life and hope restored through clean water.
