Meet World Water Summit 9 opening speaker
Kate Harawa 
Malawi Country Chair,
Water for People

"Motivated women will change the world through WASH"

As a child in in Malawi, Kate experienced first-hand the challenges of fetching water from a distant, often contaminated water source.  Not surprisingly her university studies focused on WASH and she has dedicated her professional career to advocating for change and working to improve access to safe water.

As Country Program Director for Water for People her work has included such diverse areas as:

  • Leading an initiative to pilot composting toilets;
  • Conducting tests on the safety and nutritive value of compost;
  • Capturing lessons learned and sharing knowledge.


World Water Summit 9 offers interaction with exceptional Rotarians working in the field.
