The Freshwater Action Network (FAN) http://www.freshwateraction.net/ will become an Independent charity to be known as FAN Global in July 2012.

Disclosing this today, at a Civil Society Interactive session during the ongoing Global forum on Sanitation holding in Mumbai, India, Ceridwen Johnson – FAN’s Communication Manager, said the new charity will be constituted by five regional networks- the African Civil Society Network on Water and Sanitation (ANEW)and the Freshwater Action Network South Asia (FANSA),, FAN Mexico and FAN Central America.

However, each of the five bodies-will retain some autonomy on financial and administrative matters while working together at global level on development and implementation of programmes.

“A smaller global Secretariat will work in collaboration with the regions to coordinate global policy and advocacy and programming, fundraising, strategy and governance”, said Ceridwen.

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
