Carmelita Water Project
What if you had the chance to bring clean water to a village in Guatemala? What if you - through your efforts, your donations, your care - what if YOU could save a child's life?
The Rotary Club of Pacifica is in the process of making that happen. We are moving rapidly forward as the lead US Club on a project in Carmelita, Guatemala - the gateway to some of the oldest Mayan ruins known to exist - and this community desperately needs clean, sustainable and safe water. We now have a local Host Club, the Rotary Club of Tikal Peten in Guatemala. Patrick and Marilyn Hall in our Club have met him and other club members in Flores, Guatemala. They are very much with us in making this project work. We have started the Global Grant process with Rotary International (GG 1420394) and the paperwork part of the proposal is moving forward to completion and submission.
You can learn more by checking out their proposal here!
Our Club has pledged $5,000, we have a pledge with funds in hand from a very supportive friend of Pacifica Rotary and a grant application submitted to another local organization with high hopes for their financial support as well. We also have pledges from the Rotary Clubs of Burlingame, S. San Francisco, San Francisco Evening, Daly City, Millbrae, Menlo Park, Woodside-Portola Valley, Half Moon Bay, Redwood City and SF Greater Mission!
Want to help? Call us - we will make you a part of this project in any way we possibly can. If that is accepting your donations, that we intend to match with other donor funds and with matching grants - well, that is wonderful! If you want to visit the project? That can be arranged. If you want to communicate with the experts? Start with us and we'll get you connected.
