Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet three times a month at a wine bar after work, share a social outing once a month, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president...
Colorado joins Kosovo club to restore sanitation in blighted local schools
Blighted schools in the mountain city of Peja in western Kosovo are a reminder of the ethnic strife and war that ravaged this area in the 1990s. To restore ruined sanitation facilities in some of those schools, local Rotary members recently partnered with their counterparts from Colorado, USA. Though residents have been slowly rebuilding the city's infrastructure after years of neglect under earlier governments, most resources are going to improve roads, rebuild homes, and create new businesses. Little money remains to restore the schools. As a result, students have fallen ill, stayed home...
Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds, whose release was announced 20 January, will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa. The grants include $8.1 million for Nigeria to support its final push to eradicate the disease. Nigeria...
President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting...

On December 6, 2014, members of the Rotary Club of North Fulton joined members of the Mbabane Mbuluzi Rotary Club in Swaziland for the dedication of the Living Water Dam for use by Heart for Africa on its 2500-acre tract called Project Canaan. The dam is massive with a capacity of over ten million gallons of water. The dam is fifty feet high, 400 feet wide, and almost 600 feet thick at the base.
 
            The project, with a total cost of $330,000, was made possible by a major Global Grant from the Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Club of North Fulton and the Mbabane Mbuluzi clubs were the clubs that made application for and coordinated the efforts to obtain the grant and make the dam a reality.  The grant was the largest global grant ever for Rotary District 6900, which spans much of the western third of Georgia and includes Atlanta and much of the metro area.
 
            The dam will allow water to be captured and stored during the eight-month dry season. With the irrigation system already in place, the new dam will enable Heart for Africa to increase farming from 15 to 67 acres.
 
            Kristi Crockett, president of the North Fulton Club, along with the club’s international service director, John Bach, attended the dedication. His wife, Patti Jo, also joined them on the trip.

The video below gives a wonderful summary of Project Canaan.
 

 
 

The Rotary Club of North Fulton along with Heart for Africa is excited to announce that the third dam for Swaziland is about to be completed.  Heart for Africa is a not for profit organization that in addition to many other projects, has created agricultural labor for the people of Swaziland.  There are already two dams in existence today, and these dams supply major amounts of water to irrigate crops.  The addition of a third dam will allow for a full additional growing season, which will equate to a benefit of employing another ~560 local Swaziland residents!  An additional benefit includes the ability to sell more crop exports to European nations.  We are proud to be a part of such an impactful project in helping Swaziland residents gain further independence. 

 

This effort is a part of Project Canaan.  Project Canaan is a 2,500 acre large-scale land development project being designed by business people to come alongside Africans and bring expertise, resources and heart together to find a holistic solution to a complex set of issues. It will provide training and employment, grow large amounts of food to stimulate the local economy and allow for export while supporting orphans and vulnerable children on the property and across the nation. There are two sides to this development project, the first is the farm side and the second is the children side.   Visit http://www.heartforafrica.org for more information.

 

The $360,000 Dam project is being funded by a $200,000 Global grant from the Rotary Foundation. This global grant required the Rotary Club of North Fulton to match $50,000 which was raised in 2012-2013 with the help of several other clubs. For more on Dam number 3 click here.
