Last week's actions
Last week was our "Rotary at Night" community program reviewed global efforts to provide water and sanitation to the impoverished.
Rotarians Pete, (president), and Sharon Crean, (CEO), started Beyond Water in 2007 https://www.facebook.com/BeyondWaterOrg/ while they were living in Sydney, Australia. They are passionate about alleviating poverty across East Africa through the provision of safe, clean, drinking water, and sanitation facilities.
In 2012 they moved to Nairobi, Kenya, where they have spent the last 11 years building a team of nationals to facilitate the growing work of Beyond Water, in schools, medical clinics, and remote communities. They now have teams in New Zealand, Australia, the US, and Kenya to help fight water poverty.
To date, they assist over 240,000 people daily with clean water and sanitation facilities.
The Creans have been married for 35 years and have two grown daughters (Liz who is with them in Kenya), a son-in-law, and four grandchildren, based in Queensland
