The Rotary Club of Madras (RCM) is organizing an Online Quiz focusing on “Water” for a week starting from Sunday 15th April 2018 to 22nd April 2018 to sensitivise the need to conserve water and for the public to do their bit for future generations. The club has registered a domain name www.waterQuiz.org. The online water quiz is created by expert quiz masters with 40 questions. Those interested can log on to www.waterQuiz.org and register themselves for the competition.
According to Mr. P N Mohan, President, RCM “The need for water conservation and for recharging ground water is evident from the fact that nearly 1.2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water. Also, water related deaths among children is on the rise, prompting NGOs to take up this cause on a war – footing.”
India is home to 18% of the world’s population and holds only 4% of fresh water. Thus, we are already on the back foot. Over the next 15 years, the water stress is slated to be even more severe, leading to dwindling areas under crops, depletion of ground water and shift in ecological balance.
RCM has been in the forefront of many socially relevant projects, including launch of Pulse Polio Immunisation Program, which led to ending the scourge of polio in India. Through its several other noteworthy projects, RCM has touched the lives of thousands of people in its long journey of 89 years.
The First Prize is 2 tickets on Air India to Stockholm, including 3 nights stay. Other attractive prizes include 2 tickets to Seychelles, Computers, gym equipment and other fabulous prizes.
