Consider me as one of the many simple person in this planet. Clean Water is very essential to each and every species surviving. We can live without food but having no clean drinking water is much worse. Well as an ordinary people, we can help by saving and proper utilizing of water for good and I can consider that as a person who volunteers to proper use of water.

I am Reyhan from Canada. Actually for me nothing is more beautiful than being with children, and people around the world with different culture.. my nature is built for this.. to help them, to be with them, to listen their problems. I was working with children and know how to behave with them. I am such a patient girl and love to help people.
I was also working in Energy ministry in water management department and have had many articles about clean water in poor countries. So I can use my experiences very well in this field. also I am young and learn very well..
I am ready to work as a volunteer and hope to have this chance soon. please let me help people as a responsible person in this world.
Situated in a small region on the island of La Gonave, Haiti, I'm helping to build water systems that can provide the local communities with treated drinking water, something highly coveted and hard to come by as the Haitian government does little for these communities. To strengthen the project, we are encouraging the local neighborhood committee to oversee the entire project, including managing the construction and budget, making it truly grassroots development.
I am a Cameroonian woman from the Northwest region of Cameroon and I live in Douala. I applied to volunteer for the UN but for now I am awaiting confirmation. Whatever the case, I have been doing a lot of volunteering work to better my community one of which, is a water project in EKA-BUSAM village of WIDIKUM Subdivision in the North West Region which I am still following up for realisation. What I do voluntarily is that I arranged for sensitization meetings where the villagers both in the village and in town are actually made see the importance of having good and clean water. During each meeting funds are raised for the project by the villagers and elites. So far through the Eka Development Association, a lot has been raised. it is anticipated that by January 2013 enough funds would have been raised for the project to commence. I have also applied for external funding which is highly awaited.
The Project is ongoing but I like to talk about it because it must be realised.
As the program manager assistant of the project “Drinking Water in Tchoutsi” small village in western cameroon Africa I was hired on a voluntary basis to help design and provide guidance for the monitoring and evaluation of a community water project funded with local community contribution and US Government funds through the Small Grant Program managed by the Peace Corps in Cameroon. Prior to working with me my supervisor had a difficult time finding any qualify professional, willing to work as a volunteer ready to join the project team deep in the hilly region of Western Cameroon. The project Manager was concern that I will find the work too challenging and leave the project or ask for financial compensation midway through the project. Neither of these happened. I was available and very often traveled at my own expenses. I asked numerous questions on to village inhabitants, including the councils of elders, women’s groups, school teachers and the children I encounter randomly in the village. I was clearly not just interested by the project itself or the donor’s requirements but I sought to learn more from all stakeholders. I explain to elder how the project was an opportunity to positively transform community involvement. I sought to understand the history of the local community, its past achievements and the local economy. I was committed from the start and was very strategic in gathering information. In sum I took my job seriously.
After 2 years spent in the bushland of Madagascar, I'm about to go to India in order to build facilities for a better access to clean water, always as volunteer.
I like this kind of action because it allow me to work with new people, different concerning a lot points (culture, history, religion,...), and that's very enriching.
I improve my self, I'm glad to do that and I share my happiness.
China is imbalance in water resource. However, people don't tend to realize the situation. Saving water is important.
I am from Malaysia, I travel a lot to South East Asian countries. I found that most of the country especially in rural area is still lacking of clean water supply. I was in Cambodia recently, climbing the highest mountain in Cambodia, Mt Oral. Apparently the village neat the mountain did not have clean water supply. They depend entirely from the river. They also did not have proper sanitary system.
Ce qui compte le plus pour moi c'est l'acces à l'eau potable. Donc les decideurs du monde ne doivent pas negliger cet aspect. Unissons nous tous pour l'eau potable en créant des ouvrages hydrauliques pour les plus demunies.
