Foundation Minute for the week of May 2nd

Rotarians are making a difference by improving the lives of many in communities around the world every day through thousands of service projects.  For example this past year a team of volunteers provided teacher training in Swaziland – Rotarians helped provide funds to restore a Western Nevada City dental van after it was ransacked and robbed – Rotarians provided the opportunity for high school students to “jump start” their college education – it distributed school bags and reading materials in Zambales – it provided toilets in a community that was in need of sanitation.  New Zealand Rotarians are putting food on the tables of low-income families, and a club in the Philippines helped raise awareness of the needs of disabled children. 

To date $375,035,476 has been spent for the betterment of the world community.

Your contribution to the Rotary Foundation has made this possible.  Please continue your generosity.
