History Logs

Project Description

Region: North America

Country: Mexico

Location: Tijuana

Total Budget: $35,000

Area of Focus: Economic and community development


Provide the construction of a builing of a kitchen and hall to provide breakfast to about kids and about elderly with handicapped access and ground floor access to aid the elderly access.


The "Fundacion Levantando Corazones" (Lifting Hearts Foundation) is a fully credited charity foundation in Tijuana and they currently provide meals to about 70 kids and about 20 elderly on a low income area.

After a scouting visit from our club 4100 we found that but the current kitchen and meal area do not have hard floor and no walls, it is open area only with a roof and exposed to the elements(wind, Cold, Heat, Rain).

Also the elderly currently they have to access the meal area by stairs to an equivalent of a 2~3 floor stairs.

The Kitchen area is small and non well designed.


This grant would cover the cost for a new building with a kitchen and mess hall at ground floor with handicapped access, installations and services.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
