Raya, one of the newest Muppets from Sesame Workshop, is pretty excited about the World Water Summit in Sao Paulo Brazil on 4 June, 2015, immediately before the Rotary Convention. As Raya explains in the video above (with Marga Hewko, wife of RI General Secretary John Hewko, and past RI President Bill Boyd), Rotary is all about clean water and sanitation for children everywhere. This year’s summit focuses on water and sanitation in schools, and will provide Rotary members a chance to share experiences, learn, and get support for their club and district projects.
Sesame Workshop introduced Raya last year with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to teach the TV show’s millions of viewers in Bangladesh, India, and Nigeria about sanitation and hygiene. Look for Raya at the World Water Summit.
