Update on Chile projects

 

Having spent two weeks in Chile this past November, I want to share with you the impact of our–the members and clubs of District 6420–work in this country and the reputation we are gaining as an engaged, thoughtful group of people.

 

The work of District 6420 has been made possible by the generosity of Rotarians of this district. It started with the Rotary Club of Galena establishing a Twin Club arrangement with the Rotary Club of Combarbalá, Chile. With the help of some fundraising and a Rotary grant, public restrooms were built in the town square, Plaza de Armas, en Combarbalá.. There have been many other small and large projects through the years.

The Rotary Clubs of Savanna and Mt. Carroll join together to provide each third grader from the West Carroll Primary School with a dictionary for their own personal use that they will be able to use for a lifetime.  Rotarians across the word have given over 14 million dictionaries since 2002.  Literacy and children have always been a priority for Rotary.  Giving dictionaries to students is one way for Rotary to enhance literacy skills at an early age. A dictionary is an essential tool and investment in learning.
