Foundation Minute for Week of November 13th
 

Rotary has added two service partners that offer clubs new ways to collaborate with other organizations and strengthen their projects. They are Habitat for Humanity and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness.

Habitat for Humanity has a long history of working with Rotarians and Rotaractors to build homes for families in need, and provides opportunities for hands-on community service.  Their values are closely aligned with that of Rotary, and the desire to help others run deep in both organizations.

This is very much the same with the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness.  Both Rotary and the Agency bring together government and non-governmental agencies, academics and private providers to plan and implement sustainable eye care programs.   They promote greater awareness of the need for eye clinics and blindness prevention activities.

Working together and networking accomplish Rotary’s theme of “Making a Difference.”  Your contribution to The Rotary Foundation enables this to happen.  Thank you for your generosity.
