Using www.startwithwater.org A series of training presentations How to list your project September, 20101
This presentation will explain how to list a new project on the www.startwithwater.orgwww.startwithwater.org website. September, 20102
Types of listings: There are two types of listings: 1.Full listing – provides full use of the site; 2.Base listing – provides limited use of the site. Note: The purpose of Base listings is to gather full information about Rotary Club WASH work. There is no charge for a base listing, BUT you must subscribe. This is because the system can only associate subscribers with project listings, i.e. to be connected to a listing (be able to edit if for example) you must be subscribed. As there is currently NO CHARGE to subscribe, only full listings are available now. For now, subscription is FREE. September, 20103
Gathering the right information. Once you begin listing a project you will be asked to complete a number of fields. Be prepared by downloading the Listing Form, and gathering as much information as possible ahead of time. Dont worry if its not all there – you can also go back and edit your listing. For help, see How to Edit a Project Listing September, 20104
If you need help in putting your project together, there are resources available: 1.Contact the Regional Team in your area if there is one;Regional Team 2.Check out our Learn CentreLearn Centre 3.Email an expert for helpEmail September, 20105
