Homes of Hope Mexico Build

March 2 to 5th, 2017

 
You can make a lasting difference in the lives of 6 families in Mexico by joining Calgary West and Fish Creek Rotary Clubs as we embark on our annual Homes of Hope build.
 
The families are among the poorest in the region, averaging monthly salaries of less than $200 US per month when there is work available. A number of the primary wage earners are quite often unemployed when we arrive. Typical living conditions of the families are homes built on dirt floors, using scrap material as siding and very rudimentary roofing including some with tarp roofs.
The Homes that we build are wood framed/clad, with concrete floors, 3 windows, a secure door, and tar shingled roofing. The homes are wired and have painted drywall interiors that include 2 bedrooms with an open living area. In addition, the families are provided with a furniture package that includes beds, table and chair, propane stove, and drapes.
 
The real benefit to the families is having a safe and healthy environment, off the dirt floors, that is secure and dry. The families overall health improves, the children begin to excel at school, and the parents can focus on providing the necessities of life without worrying about shelter.
 
We find that for those participants that allow themselves to live in the moment, and experience the families, their lives are changed as well. Our “Casa de Esperanza Famila” continues to grow every year. To participate you must get yourself to San Diego on March 2nd and contribute $385 US for your Room Board and transportation while in Mexico. We will commit to having you back at the San Diego Airport by 10am on Sunday March 5th…That’s right, 6 Homes in 4 Days …..

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
