Welcome to the Global Kalinga e-Rotary Club for the week of Sunday, March 26 through Saturday, April 1, 2017. We are an Internet based Rotary Club based in Quezon City, Philippines with core groups of members in Southern California and elsewhere. We serve our local and nearby communities as well as projects in the Philippines.
"We have grown accustomed to the wonders of clean water, indoor plumbing, laser surgery, genetic engineering, artificial joints, replacement body parts, and the much longer lives that accompany them. Yet we should remember that the vast majority of humans ever born died before the age of 10 from an infectious disease." ~ S. Jay Olshansky
Rotary 4-Way Test
Of the things we think, say or do:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
Take your time and sing-along (wherever you may be).
Traditionally, Rotary clubs have Fine Masters who are responsible for collecting fines/happy dollars. The clipart to your left is our e-club Fine Master. Do you have happy dollars, a birthday, an anniversary, a promotion, opening a new business, new car, new child, new grandchild, etc. Please feel free (and perhaps obligated) to click on our Rotary Fine Master button to your right.
The minimum fine is $3.00 to ensure a sufficient amount to take care of the PayPal fee. The purpose of the fines can be viewed by clicking on [View Fines/Happy Dollars] from the [Weekly Meetings] main menu
Program—Students Improving Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene in the Developing World | Lee Blaney
Lee Blaney is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical, Biochemical and Environmental Engineering at UMBC. His research program focuses on water/ wastewater treatment of traditional and emerging contaminants.
He also has a passion for working in the developing world and has conducted water and sanitation projects around the world. These projects were all university-based, and students played an important role. At UMBC, he advises the Engineers Without Borders chapter and their project in western Kenya.
With 750 million people lacking access to clean water and 2.5 billion without improved sanitation facilities, the global community must prioritize water, sanitation, and hygiene. Lee Blaney believes that students can play a fundamental role in these efforts and improve the lives of hundreds of millions of people in the developing world.
