The Rotary Foundation approved a global grant to the Rotary Club of Ventura East in partnership with the Rotary Club of Managua, to support our ongoing educational programs in Nicaragua.  The $219,000 grant will help sustain the existing community learning center in the impoverished community of Pantanal, Granada, and will enable the program to expand to the communities of Cuajachillo Dos and La Union, both near the nation's capital city, Managua.
The programs are managed by our cooperating organization, GoCare, founded in 2001 by Ventura East Rotary member Jan Lindsay.  You can find more information about our work in Nicaragua in a recent article by reporter Claudia Boyd-Barrett in the July 11, 2014 issue of the Ventura County Star.

The Pushem Pullem Parade was covered by reporter Anne Kallas in the July 5 2014 issue of the Ventura County Star.

The Rotary Club of Ventura East is an active partner with the Ventura Rotaract Club, a sister Rotary organization geared to the upcoming generation of young professionals.
Rotary Club of Ventura East completed its first major event for the new Rotary Year.  Continuing with a tradition that began in 1976, the club organized and sponsored this year's "Pushem - Pullem" Parade - kicking off the 4th of July celebrations in the City of Ventura.

Polio's Retreat

He was two years old then and had recently contracted polio. Kwesell approaches the front porch of a home when she hears an older woman yelling “Samir! Samir!” She runs toward the voice, wondering if she’ll recognize the boy. She sees six children playing chase on the dry earth, the dirt forming clouds around their feet. From afar she notices a young boy, not unlike the other barefoot children in the backyard...
