Rotary Club of Hall has been supporting  the Abundant Water Project in Lao for a number of years and this year saw the Hall Club establish a more formal partnership arrangement with Abundant Water Inc., a ‘not-for-profit’ organisation developing and sharing the innovation of clay-pot water filters with indigenous potters in the Lao PDR.

The organisation develops and transfers clean water solutions with communities in need of clean drinking water.

In February this project was one of six that was selected to receive a grant of $1,000 from the Pink Umbrella Foundation for its approach to develop local capability and ownership and sharing expertise rather than transplanting alien systems, technologies or money.

President Brian Goldstraw received the cheque that was put with the Rotary Club of Hall donation of $8,000 toward the project.
