What is a Wasrag Regional Team?
Volunteer Rotarians who guide and assist clubs and districts with water, sanitation and hygiene sustainability projects. The Regional Team [RT] is formed in a Rotary district or a country in the district (whichever is smaller).
What are the Roles in a Regional Team?
Team Leader: Selected by the district leadership.
Wasrag Liaison: Supports the team, provides training, orientation and connections to resources around the world.
Team Members: Rotarians in the district and international partner Rotarians who support and work with them.
Why Form a Regional Team?
To provide a strong Water Sanitation and Hygiene [WaSH] program throughout Rotary.
To assist Rotarians, clubs and districts with sustainable WaSH projects that have measurable results.
To grow our WaSH program to address whole watersheds and large areas and bringing economies of scale better planning and more success.
To do WaSH work better, learn better methods and provide lasting benefits to the communities we serve.
Where are Regional Teams located?
In each Rotary district or country, whichever is smaller, in the parts of the world that need water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH). A team can also be formed in International Partner districts to support and connect with RTs in these needy locations.
How can I get involved?
When will a Regional Team happen in my location?
RTs are being formed in several areas of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. If your district is not on the list, talk with your DG, DGE and district Water or International Projects chair and have them contact the RT Coordinator
How is an RT connected to the TRF Project Enhancement Process (PEP) Program?
Regional Teams are the permanent group helping clubs and districts do WaSH work. After an area is studied and selected for project development, a professional team of volunteers is brought in to complete the needs analysis, consider alternatives and make recommendations to the RT and club/district involved. Read more about the professional or PPP Team in this flyer. The PEP (Project Enhancement Process) Pilot in districts selected by TRF Trustees is being conducted in 2012-13 to test and improve this process. Read more about PEP on this web page [link] and in this FAQ.
