Rotary, Doing Good Around The World

 

 

 

An estimated 878 million people around the world — nearly half of them employed — live on less than US$1.25 a day. Rotarians bring economic and community development to impoverished areas through projects that provide vocational training, support local entrepreneurs and community leaders, and assist with long-term recovery in places struck by natural disaster.

 

Hannah Warren, a former Ambassadorial Scholar, says her Rotary experience inspired her to become a social entrepreneur. She founded Jhoole, a nonprofit business that offers impoverished women in India access to training, materials, and international markets for hand-woven goods, enabling them to earn a living wage.

 

With help from a Rotary Foundation grant, Jhoole acquired looms, cloth, and funds to cover training costs for weaving and sewing.   “There is no way I could be doing this [work] were it not for my Ambassadorial Scholarship,” Warren says. “Like Jhoole’s programs, Rotary scholarships are not a one-time donation; they are an investment in goodwill.”

 

Watch a video about Hannah Warren's work
and Rotary's focus on community and economic development:
 

 

As you consider your charitable giving for this year, we hope you will continue your previous financial support for The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International. We am grateful for your past generosity, and seek your continued support.
