Club Stories
Tacoma Sunset Rotarians are putting their hands and wallets into the renovation project at Shared Housing Services, whose mission is "Connecting people and fostering independence through innovative and affordable housing, because everyone needs a place to call home." In partnership with district 5020, Tacoma Sunset Rotarians will be painting and installing new blinds in the newly renovated Transitional Family units on Saturday, October 15, 2016.
 
From Mark Merrill, Executive Director, Shared Housing Service:
 

"Transitional Family Housing provides low-income homeless families with housing opportunities in one of our 12 units on the premises. To foster positive growth in a stable wholesome family atmosphere, case managers provide supportive services to stabilize families in order to graduate them to permanent housing as rapidly as possible.   

Meeting critical basic family needs for housing is the first step, which is followed by a structured program of progressive support services stressing positive growth for families and based on individual needs. This encourages raising aspirations for quality of family life and provides the tools families can use to achieve their goals." 

 

 
Check out her fundraising plan for the rotary training project in The Seychelles!
 
 

 
Our rotary club is supporting a multi-day entrepreneurial training workshop for women and girls in the Republic of Seychelles in October, 2016, and five rotarians from our club are participating in the training! We're raising money to help fund the project.  All donations are tax deductible. $35 donors will receive a gift of earrings by Linda Danforth Designs or a signed copy of "One Night in Rome" by Michelle Merritt. $70 donors will receive both of these gifts!

The training will be focused on encouraging women to start their own businesses in order to provide for their families and potentially grow the workforce in the Seychelles. The training will provide enhancement of the women's life skills development, economic development training and self-worth enhancement.
 
 

 
What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.
 
 
Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
