You will be welcomed into our Rotary family. We meet every Tuesday at noon at the Reagan Center in El Cajon.
Our International President (Mr Huang) has indicated that we should continue to “Light up Rotary” this year. He has urged us to read The Rotarian Magazine online at http://therotarianmagazine.com/. This month, April, I would urge that we take advantage of the world becoming smaller through social media. During this age of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, WeChat, and more; we have the ability to share in our work. This age of video conferencing and instant messages allows us to work together from most anywhere, keep in touch and do our Rotary work. The result is helping more people than ever before. Please join us in this effort.
Almost 200 million days of school attendance are lost every year because of the lack of proper sanitation. Many diarrhea cases in children result from transmission of disease in schools rather than at home.

When former Costa Rican president Oscar Arias was eight years old, his country abolished its military and turned its focus instead to human rights and peace. Now, the Nobel Peace laureate believes the world can gain just as much by following his country’s example.

“My country promised me, and all its children, that it would invest not in the weapons of our past, but in the tools of our future;...
A project launched by members of Rotaract in Uttar Pradesh, India, is liberating women who emptied dry toilets with their hands by teaching them skills that enable them to earn a living for their families.
Although the practice of manual scavenging was banned in India in 1993, it persists in many parts of the country. The women who engage in it, many of them the sole wage earners for their families, make a meager income for their efforts.
Through Project Azmat, members of the Rotaract Club of SRCC Panchshila Park, partnered with the international nonprofit Enactus to organize these women into...
According to a 2012 report by UNICEF and the World Health Organization, Ghana has made great strides in providing its people with clean drinking water. But access to better sanitation has lagged.
Only about 14 percent of Ghanaians have access to improved facilities, compared with the 54 percent target set for 2015 by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
