WASRAG AMBASSADOR CORPS

JOIN US

 
The Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group (WASRAG) is appointing WASRAG Ambassadors to represent WASRAG in their local districts.  The goals of Ambassadors are those of WASRAG , i.e.:
 
•    To provide information, support and encouragement to Rotarians, Rotary Clubs and districts, and
•    To take active roles in projects/programs to develop safe water and sanitation as a means of promoting health and alleviating hunger.
 
An overview of the initiative that further describes the conditions and responsibilities of the Ambassadorship is provided in the section “About Us”.  While it is a volunteer position, it holds great responsibility as well as the potential to make a significant contribution toward achieving universal access to clean water, hygiene education and improved sanitation.
 
If you are interested in being appointed as a WASRAG Ambassador, please submit a personal application form, which may be accessed using the address below:
 
 
By this means, you will communicate to us your interest and the region (e..g. district, country) for which you could act as an Ambassador.  If you have questions you may direct them to the Ambassador Project Manager, Ginny Ryan at Ginny@WASRAG.org.  
 
 

ABOUT THE WASRAG AMBASSADOR CORPS


The WASRAG Ambassadors Corps was initiated by WASRAG in 2016 and is comprised of volunteers chosen by the Operations Team of the Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group (WASRAG) to represent WASRAG interests and objectives in defined regions of the Rotary World.  Ambassadors are selected based upon their ability to work within their region as a liaison between their local Rotary Clubs, district leadership and WASRAG.  They facilitate the development of human and technical capacity of Rotary Clubs and Districts for the delivery of sustainable WASH interventions . They also seek to increase the membership of the organization as active members in WASRAG are vital for the continued growth of sustainable WASH programs throughout the Rotary World.

Ambassadors, as volunteers, are Rotarians, members of WASRAG and have a passion of WASH programs.   They must be able to communicate easily and be respected by Rotarians within their District.
