Start with water was founded to help third world countries around the world to have clean drinking water. We decided the best way to do this was to create our own range of water filters we could sell and use the profits and products to send all over the world to supply on going clean drinking water to those in need.

Wasrag’s Organizational Structure (effective April 30, 2011) PDF
Regional Teams organized by Rotary District/Countries will include the District Governor, Key Rotarians working in country, liaison from NGOs recognized by RI/Wasrag, a Wasrag Liaison (Note: Each Team will have a Wasrag Liaison with the larger Wasrag Regional Team).
Wasrag is in the process of identifying Regional Team Leaders for all RI Districts in regions of the world that will need WASH projects. Each of the Regional Teams will include the Water Resource Group Leaders, the active Rotary Clubs already undertaking WASH projects in that District and will build upon the Rotary leadership already operating in the District. The Regional Teams will oversee the Needs Assessments, the project prioritization, and work with Monitoring Teams on project monitoring to achieve the sustainability that Rotary/Wasrag supports. The projects will also be designed to support the RI Future Vision initiative.
