Steve Certa, Rotary District 7550 District Governor Elect for 2017-2018 from the Weymouth (MA) Rotary Club, made a presentation about the Safe Passage Project that provides support for children in Guatemala who live in a garbage dump. Very inspiring presentation about how one Rotarian woman made a big change for the affected people. They now get nutritional meals, education and upgraded housing, allowing the affected children to become citizens of the Guatemalan society. Find out more at http://www.safepassage.org/.
Projects under consideration include: 1) Solar Lanterns for villages in remote regions of Ghana, and 2) additional funding to the Rotary Int’l Polio Plus Campaign.
The Rotary Foundation (Click here) helps fund our humanitarian activities, from local service projects to global initiatives. Clubs or districts can apply for grants from the Foundation to invest in projects and provide scholarships. The Foundation also leads the charge on worldwide Rotary campaigns such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Rotarians and friends of Rotary support the Foundation’s work through voluntary contributions.
To date for this Rotary year (thru January), our club has donated about $6,200 with a goal of about $6,800. Thanks to all members than contribute.
The collage of pictures above shows some of our Foundation-related items:
- Pete Walker (upper left) is our Foundation Chairman.
- In 2014 (lower right), Kathy Clemens a District 5180 Foundation leader, came to our club and "inducted" our Paul Harris Society members. These are members committed to donating $1,000 per year to the Foundation, and included Art Deardorff, Elizabeth Jansen, Ed Page, Clark Osterhout, Pete Walker and Jim Zentner. (Also shown is RI director Steve Snyder.). This year, Sharron Snyder joined this "club."
