The Obakki Foundation drills and monitors wells in Africa. Since 2009, the've provided over 700 wells and brought water to more than 750,000 people. Their model is simple: they drill wells, monitor their adoption, and then expand development in villages that show a capacity for maximizing their newfound resource. Their wells reduce conflict over food and water. Communities are able to settle in one place and no longer need to move around in search of clean water. By working together to develop long-term solutions for growth, communities are able to build homes, engage in trade and send their children to school.

Individual Rotary clubs belong to Rotary International. Individual members, or Rotarians, belong to a club. The club is where most of Rotarians' meaningful service work is carried out. Clubs can be engaged not only in their communities, but also internationally. What Rotarians get out of Rotary depends largely on what they put into it.
