...and your Club can too. 
Rotarian Mary Layman put the Carpenteria Club in contact with the Roatan Village Project on a small island off the coast of Honduras. Many villagers and local schools were without reliable electricity. Mary led the way for the club to support the schools and families there. She recruited other team members, and applied for a Peacebuilder Solar Matching Grant for solar powered lights and cell chargers from the Carpinteria Morning Rotary Club. The grant matched each solar light and solar cell charger with a free solar light and charger. In the first phase, 40 Unite to Light solar lights and 10 cell chargers were sent to Roatan.
During the 2020-2021 year, vver 100 students and families benefited with light at night for homework and other household needs as well as the ability to charge cell phones. Safe and secure delivery was provided with support of  project leaders in Roatan Village Project.

At this time, Four matching grants are now available to Rotary clubs to start an international project or extend the benefit of current projects. The Carpinteria Morning Club will match match 20 solar lights  and 5 solar chargers when your club purchases 20 solar lights ($10 each) and/or 5 solar chargers ($30 each) for a project. Often your club members can provide secure transportation when they visit the sites of your project.
