Adopt-a-Village: Consider how your Rotary Club could change the life of an entire community. Your club could improve the health of every man, woman and child in a rural impoverished village. What a legacy! Adopt-a-Village in Honduras and change lives. For $10,000 you and your Rotary Club could make a significant difference. For your contribution, a permanent sign with the Rotary wheel, name of your Rotary Club and the name of the presiding club president will be placed in a prominent location in the village. If this is too large a project for your club at this time, partner with other clubs and together you can Adopt-a-Village.
Direct Contributions: Rotarians are very busy people. Many times we do not have the time to identify or develop projects with other Rotary Clubs in another country. Pure Water for the World, Inc. has projects of various sizes available for immediate implementation in Honduras and is ready to partner with Rotary Clubs in order to provide clean drinking water to children and their families. Direct contributions from Rotary Clubs to Pure Water will be efficiently and effectively employed in providing a community clean, safe drinking water. Implement your International Service goals by putting your dollars to work by Partnering with Pure Water to bring clean drinking water to those who need it the most.
Rotary Foundation Grants: Matching Grants from The Rotary Foundation are a powerful way to leverage club and/or district monies to substantially expand the size of a project. Matching Grants support broad-based international humanitarian projects with the aim of providing sustainable development, such as water projects. All grants require participation of 2 Rotary Clubs - -your club and a Rotary Club in the country where the water project is located.
PWW’s established presence in Central America enables us to facilitate cooperative working relationships between your club and in-country Rotarians. PWW can also provide valuable guidance with the administrative requirements of a Rotary Foundation Matching Grant. For more eligibility requirements on these grants, consult your district Matching Grant Committee rep or visit Rotary Intl’s website.
