Foundation Minute for Week of October 8th
 

Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus in order to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.

We learned about three areas last week and here are the others;
 

Saving mothers and children: Nearly 6 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation.  Rotary expands access to quality care, so mothers and their children can live and grow stronger.

 

Supporting education: More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate.  Rotary’s goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy. And finally

 

Growing local economies: Rotary carries out service projects that enhance economic and community development and creates opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old.  Rotary also strengthens local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women in impoverished communities.  

 

Your support of TRF enables this to happen.  Thank you
