With an exciting District Grant made possible in partnership with the City of Los Angeles, an ongoing Global Grant in Kenya providing accessible water, work, and recreational opportunities, and the pending Reverse Global Grant benefiting L.A.

Happy Holidays, everyone!
CLEAN WATER FROM ROTARY FOR KENYA

Four years ago, the president of the Rotary Club of Downtown Los Angeles, Peter Lattey, received a plea for help from the President of the Rotary Club of Migori, Kenya, which he posted on the club’s Facebook page. The Migori club was failing and he needed some advice. After some discussion it was decided that the club should find a service project that would raise their profile in the community. Thus was born this WASH (water and sanitation) project.
Come tour a selection of the most unique and eclectic lofts, artist studios, and other amazing places that define the Arts District!
