Walter Hughes, Jr.
Rotary Club of Rocky Mount, Virginia (District 7570)

Walter is a White House Champion of Change.  He earned Rotary’s Vocational Service and the Rotary Distinguished Service Awards.  His work was also highlighted at the Rotary International Conventions in Sydney and Seoul with the video “Doing Good in Ghana.”
 
Walter’s team has passionately provided clean water to over 300,000 people in Africa.  He leads a partnership including one hundred fourteen (114) Rotary Clubs in thirty-two (32) districts in twenty-one (21) U.S. states, two Canadian provinces, Switzerland, Ghana and South Sudan.  He also partners with other non-profit organizations and churches.   
 
Walter led Rotary projects over the past ten years to locate wells in communities with the highest incidence of Guinea worm disease in Ghana and South Sudan.  The World Health Organization certified Ghana as free of Guinea worm disease in 2014. He traveled to South Sudan in November to see how Rotary’s clean water project transformed lives even during a civil war.   South Sudan has no cases year-to-date in 2016.  Rotary is close to eradicating both Guinea worm and polio from the world. 
 
He was the Director of Strategic Technology at America Online (AOL), but now is an independent missionary.  He the proud father of four children.  Walter goes to Ghana where he sees clean water flowing, sanitation with new Microflush toilets, new medical equipment at hospitals and computer labs at schools.  He is empowering communities to work with Rotary to drill more wells where people are thirsty.
