Locals in Nepal welcome visiting Aldergrove Rotarians Gord and Jean Carnes
For the past 20 years members of the Aldergrove Rotary Club have supported the Nepal Water Project, a Rotary International initiative that brings water systems, sanitary latrines and smokeless stoves to remote areas of Nepal.  
Helping save lives and improve living conditions, the Aldergrove Rotary Club has raised a total of $45,000 over the past 12 years to support construction of water systems in some of Nepal's most remote villages. In March, 2017 Rotarian Gord Carnes and his wife Jean made the trek to Manthali Nepal to meet personally with some of the locals benefiting from the sanitary water conditions and view the new water systems.  To see more of Jean's wonderful photos, visit
