Chinook Rotary sponsors and supports two Interact Clubs. This is a short update on what one of these clubs is currently up to.
Chinook Rotary teams with Medical Mercy to bring Light:
This year’s project will be to provide Solar lighting to homes for displaced people in Loi-Kaw, Shan State, Myanmar. Our project will install 80 sets of lights which will help the lives of 500 people who live in straw housing and currently have no electric power services. The lighting systems will improve safety since current lighting is provided by candles and kerosene lamps. Lighting will extend peoples days allowing additional study time for kids and family interaction. Our on-site volunteers purchase the kits locally (previously tested for robustness), train villagers to install & maintain the systems. In addition repeat annual visits ensure that the systems remain operable and sustainable over many years.
Of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
