Water Is Life On The Navajo Nation

The Navajo Nation is in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah. There are over 175,000 Native Americans living on this land with about 40 percent of them without inside tap water and/or a toilet.  It is estimated that the average American home consumes 100 gallons of water per day while the average Navajo consumes seven (7) gallons per day.  Or putting it another way, today’s toilet uses 3.5 to 5 gallons per flush. So, two (2) flushes per day can exceed a day use of water. And what about: Laundry? Bathing? Cooking? Having a glass of water?

In summation, what a wonderful project with Rotarians from multiple states and countries uniting together to help others. Together, we accomplished the mission and the project has been fully realized! And in the words of Stan Kaufman, “Thank you fellow Rotarians! It is so wonderful when we work together for the common good of our respective country’s needs! After 37 years in Rotary I remain surprised every year at what strength and resolve we millions of ROTARIANS CONTINUE TO BRING HUMANKIND.”
