Foundation Minute:  Week of February 8th, 2016
 
With the aide of a Rotary District International Grant, The Binghamton Noon Club in Binghamton, New York, was able to contribute funding that allowed The Rotary School4Freedom to begin the process of freeing villagers in Uttar Pradesh, India from debt bondage.  The grant provides the tangible needs for the three year process which will provide a school, school supplies and furnishings, teachers, hot lunches, a solar street lamp and field workers to educate, provide vocational training and help villagers learn about their human rights.   These essentials will allow them to obtain the knowledge, economic stability and organizational skills to demand their own freedom and sustain it.   132 individuals from the village will benefit directly through freedom and 293 lower caste and uneducated illiterate villagers at risk for slavery will be indirectly affected as they are strengthened against debt bondage slavery.
 
Your generous contribution to the Rotary Foundation helped make this happen.  Thank you. With the aide of a Rotary District International Grant, The Binghamton Noon Club in Binghamton, New York, was able to contribute funding that allowed The Rotary School4Freedom to begin the process of freeing villagers in Uttar Pradesh, India from debt bondage.  The grant provides the tangible needs for the three year process which will provide a school, school supplies and furnishings, teachers, hot lunches, a solar street lamp and field workers to educate, provide vocational training and help villagers learn about their human rights.   These essentials will allow them to obtain the knowledge, economic stability and organizational skills to demand their own freedom and sustain it.   132 individuals from the village will benefit directly through freedom and 293 lower caste and uneducated illiterate villagers at risk for slavery will be indirectly affected as they are strengthened against debt bondage slavery.

Beware of new email scam claiming to be from Foundation Chair Klinginsmith
A new email purporting to be from Rotary Foundation Trustee Chair Ray Klinginsmith is targeting Rotary members. The email falsely claims that members can become End Polio Now ambassadors if they email club information to a Gmail address within 48 hours. The fraudulent email has the subject line “BECOME AN END POLIO AMBASSADOR” and is sent from a fake email address. This is a scam. Rotary staff is working to resolve the issue. Avoid being the victim of scams by deleting any email that appears suspicious.
