As a Rotarian, you can make a difference in people's lives both at home and abroad. Rotary Toronto Eglinton Global Grants include the following:


Rift Valley Water & Sanitation:

RTE has worked for several years in the Rift Valley area of Kenya bringing clean water, sanitation and hygiene education to the area, most recently to rural elementary and secondary schools. Prior to working in the schools, we participated in a Global Grant providing rainwater harvesting tanks to households and supporting women with microfinance initiatives.

Bugiri WASH in School Project:

Our most recent Global Grant application is for a project to provide water, sanitation, hygiene education and a menstrual hygiene management program in up to 10 schools in South East Uganda. RTE is the International Host, which means we are responsible for fund raising and managing the project and any Global Grant in partnership with the Ugandan host Rotary. Our participation in these international activities provides opportunities to make a significant difference in many lives.
