Project Description

Country: USA

Location: San Diego

Total Budget: $2,000

Area of Focus: None

Activity Type: RI Youth Programs (Youth Exchange, RYLA, Rotaract, Interact)

Summary: Rotarians, Rotaractors, and other members of the San Diego community assemble Water Pasteurization Indicators (WAPIs) to be sent to refugees in Eastern Africa (specific location to be decided upon).


In much of East Africa water sources are unsafe to drink and must be heated in order to kill

disease-causing bacteria. Individuals generally heat their water to its boiling point (212°F) in

order to ensure the water is safe to drink. However, water is pasteurized at 149°F, well below

boiling temperature. This means individuals unnecessarily waste valuable resources bringing

their water to a full boil before drinking. WAPIs visually indicate water's pasteurization

temperature so that individuals do not have to unnecessarily bring their water all the way to a

boil in order to know their water is safe to drink.

The WAPI Project 2020 will provide WAPIs to individuals in East Africa who have limited

resources and unsafe water sources. The event itself will be held sometime in March and the

completed WAPIs will be sent to East Africa within two months of the event.

Because we have held this event several times before, we will reuse most of the equipment

purchased in past years. Additionally, we will receive funding from UCSD for the room and food

for the event. Our funds will therefore be used to purchase the necessary materials to make the

WAPIs themselves and to ship the completed WAPIs to East Africa. All members who attend

the event assemble the WAPIs and interested club members receive training and instruct others

on WAPI-assembly during the event.

You should include what needs have been identified, how the project will meet those needs, and

the timeline for your project. Please specify what the project funds will be used for and how club

members will be involved.
