Nearly 800 million people live on less than $1.90 a day.  Rotary members are passionate about providing sustainable solutions to poverty.  Along with the Foundation they provide training and access to well-paying jobs and financial management institutions.
Rotarians make amazing things happen:
The Rotary Club of Guatemala de la Ermita helped 400 local women complete financial literacy courses so they could pool their money and fund their own micro-lending program.
In Esmeraldas, Ecuador, Rotary members helped grant more than 250 microloans and train more than 270 community members in sewing, baking, plumbing, microcredit, business management, and leadership.
And in West Cameroon, soil erosion and loss of soil fertility have significantly reduced farmers’ harvests.  Rotary members gave farmers the skills they needed to improve soil fertility, control soil erosion, and market their produce.  The results: increased crop yields and profits.
Your support of The Rotary Foundation enables this to happen. Thank you.
