The Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise is one of more than 34,000 clubs worldwide; the 1.2 million members represent a wide range of business, professional and community leaders. Rotary's motto Service above Self, embodies Rotary's objective to provide service - in the community, in the workplace and around the globe. Rotarians come from different cultures, ethnicities, political and religious orientations. While this means that each club is unique, it also means that we set differences aside to focus on the issues such as education, vocational training,clean water and sanitation, food security, health and the global eradication of polio.

We  are raising funds for the education of a former Rotary exchange student from Venezuela. Karla was our Rotary exchange student in 2015. After a year as a grade 12 student at CCVS High School in Cornwall Ontario she returned to Venezuela to pursue post-secondary education there.   https://www.gof undme.com/karla039s-education-expenses         or 
Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise Foundation, PO Box 565, Cornwall, ON  K6H 5T2

Due to the crisis in Venezuela, Karla has been unable to continue her post-secondary education. She  has applied and been accepted in the 3 year Social Service Worker program at St. Lawrence College in Cornwall Ontario. Funds are being raised to support her 3 years of study as an international student in Canada.

                    $15,300 tuition /year
                    $400-800 / year Average Expenses for Books
                                     = $48,300 + lodging

She is no longer able to pursue her studies at home because Venezuela's economic crisis keeps getting worse. The slow-burning economic collapse is quickly becoming a regional humanitarian crisis as Venezuelans flee in ever larger numbers, looking for refuge in neighboring and nearby countries. More than 600,000 Venezuelans have already fled their country and sought asylum in Colombia.

A large number of students have  been forced to drop out of universities around the country. The economic crisis has forced both university students and professors to either search for jobs elsewhere or simply leave the country. The dramatic fall in the real wages of faculty has caused an estimated 1,600 professors to leave the five main public universities resulting in a desertion rate close to 70 percent. The rectors of UNIMET and UCAB, claim that the Venezuelan State “has deliberately manipulated norms, policies and practices in order to suppress academic freedom and university autonomy". These protests and violence put students at risk. 
This year the Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise will once again be hosting Adventures in the Environment from Sunday Sept 16th to Thursday Sept 20th, 2018.
Participants should arrive in Cornwall on Sunday Sept 16th; the adventure starts on Monday morning Sept 17 and ends at 4:00 pm on Thursday Sept 20.  This adventure consists of 4 full days of environmental science and field biology.
Our capacity is 8 participants; the fee this year is $550; and we promise an eye-opening experience which involves fish biology, turtles, bees, eels, water plants, bats and probably more that a few unexpected elements of science.  
Students must be 16 years of age and have completed at least two years of high school science.
Deadline for application is June 30th.
