Too often NGO's in general and Rotary in particular unknowingly create dependence rather than independence. Jon Kaufman of H2OpenDoors will discuss how a water enterprise that generates over $100,000 in annual revenue, run by women in many cases, can fund other essential social services. 

Jon joined Rotary eight years ago to disrupt the traditional way water was being provided for the poor. H2OpenDoors was established as a project of Rotary clubs worldwide, and has installed 33 water purification plants in 11 countries. With a Donor Advised Fund at The Rotary Foundation (TRF), the project has brought along over 500 Rotarians and friends on expeditions for service and adventure. Long Walk on a Dry Road is a book Jon wrote in 2018 about Rotary International projects and the compelling stories over the past several years. It became a bestseller on Amazon and Audible. Jon is a member of Peninsula Starlight Rotary in our District 5150 and enjoys a good cigar, fine scotch, mediocre golf and being walked each day by his 100 pound Malamute.
