Project Description

Activity Type: Community Development: Construction/Renovation

Summary: Rotarians will help build a home for a family in Mexico & purchase mosquito nets to prevent malaria

The Rotary Club of Santee-Lakeside will work with partner clubs on a one day home build in Baja California. Through a member survey, our members support an international project.

Members provide support through monetary donations, labor on the day of and donations of household items - even if they cannot go in person the day of the build. It is life-changing for the family receiving the home and represents a fresh start. The simple wooden structure addresses many basic needs: shelter, security, health, alleviates extreme poverty and helps build a sense of community, promoting goodwill and peace. The District grant would help our Club participate in this deeply humanitarian project. We are requesting $500 in matching DDF funds to meet the cost of the project.

We will also be working with African Enterprise to purchase mosquito nets to help prevent the transmission of malaria in Tanzania. Statistics indicate nets reduce the incidence of this killer disease by between 25-40%. WHO rates Malaria as the 2nd most deadly disease in Africa next to HIV/Aids, with over 600,000 deaths a year and mostly children under 5. We are requesting $250 in matching DDF funds to provide 50 nets to families in need.
