Robin Singer, VP Falmouth Rotary Club
Human Trafficking, How Rotary Clubs Can 'Stand In the Way'

Robin Singer is the vice-president of the Rotary Club of Falmouth, Cape Cod and on the Board of 
Directors.   She joined Rotary after retiring from teaching math at Sturgis Public Charter School in 2019.  
She also spent 20 years at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where she was a research engineer.   

In 2006, while working, Robin also began volunteering for an NGO called Her Future Coalition, which has 
helped more than 5000 girls and young women who have been rescued from slavery in brothels or are at
high risk of being trafficked.   HFC provides shelter, vocational training, mental health services, and 
education, so that each girl or woman can become self-sustaining and realize her dreams.   

Robin has led the anti-trafficking subcommittee of the Falmouth Rotary Club as they have provided 
funding for Learning Centers in Nepal and India, provided a library at a hostel in Nepal with a Rotary 
Action Group Against Slavery (RAGAS) grant, and helped fund a shelter in the Newakot region of Nepal.  
They are currently designing a solar power facility there with the help of the Environment and 
Sustainability Rotary Action Group, ESRAG, and they have developed and sustained an educational 
program over zoom, teaching English and math to at-risk girls.
