H2OpenDoors - Rotary Intl. Water Project

Jon Kaufman shared information about H2O Open Doors where they install water purification plants to help purify water in less developed areas, such as Thailand, the Philippines, Mexico, Guatemala, Uganda, etc. 

The water purification plants are certified to process approximately a gallon per day for ten thousand people which equates to ten thousand gallons per day. Some of the water purification plants are enterprises which provide the opportunity for villages to earn money. One village can earn revenue of approximately $100,000 USD per year. 

Jon Kaufman also discussed some of the additional projects, such as eyeglass wear and computer labs, that are performed contemporaneously during the installation of the water purification pants.

Jon Kaufman then went on to discuss his new product where he creates a personalized mask which some of the proceeds benefit H2O Open Doors. (
