Want to go on a Rotary Safari ?


Rotary Safaris are opportunities to travel to other countries to work on humanitarian projects.  If you have never been on an international project or are looking for a chance to see another culture and to see Rotary in action worldwide, this may be something for you. 

 

MexicoThis year (2016), we have been invited by District 4160 to tour the district and visit clubs following their District Conference in beautiful San Miguel de Allende, GTO.  The dates of the Conference are April 29-30, which we are also invited to (information and cost will be available soon), with the Safari planned from Sunday the 1st and returning home on the 4th of May.  The Safari is sponsored by the Rotary clubs of District 4160. They will home-host you (with hotels as an option at your expense), feed you and introduce you to their members and families. You will be able to see their local attractions and points of interests, community projects, and do hands-on projects. The objective of the Safari is to share the Rotary experience, create partnerships and lifetime friendships with these clubs.  For more information, please contact PDG Wade Nomura at wadedg1112@verizon.net.

 

Honduras - RC Westlake Village Sunrise has a project to help children with club feet and other corrective surgeries in Tegucigalpa.  Volunteers are needed to support the logistics around the surgeries, helping with the kids, meeting local Rotarians, visiting the adopted village to see proposed projects and attend local Rotary club meetings.  Volunteers pay for their own transportation (about $700).  Housing is with local Rotarian families.  For more information, contact Evie Greene at 818-400-0727 or eviegreene@earthlink.net
