He is familiar with integrating WASH activities into other developmental sectors such as health, agriculture, education, environment, gender and micro-finance. 

Prior to returning to DRI in 2012, Dr. Apambire served as a Senior Advisor at the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, where he managed  the Foundation’s WASH grant portfolio; advised Foundation staff and the Board of Directors on policy, advocacy and technical matters related to the WASH sector and represented the Foundation in the sector.

He also served as the WASH Director for the WVI Global Center and led the strategy development and the creation of an internet-based Community of Practice for the WASH sector of the partnership of close to 100 countries.



To purchase Lacy’s CD go to www.LacyJ

The CD includes 10 of Lacy's greatest hits and the two Rotary songs she performed at the RI convention in New Orleans "We Are Rotary" and "This Close".  Net proceeds go to Polio Plus. Lacy is a big supporter of Rotary's efforts to eliminate Polio.  Many people don't know that her sister is a Polio survivor.  Lacy is very supportive and appreciative of Rotary for all they do to make our world a better place.

Does your club need a new fundraiser? 

If your club needs a fundraiser that is fun, a good value, and requires a minimal number of man hours to plan, then consider hiring Lacy to do a benefit concert.  Unlike many club fundraisers most of the money from a concert comes from the community not your club members. Call Terry House at (775) 351-5514 or email  for more information

For advice on what it takes to do a concert for a club fundraiser email fellow Rotarian at
