“Our club is interested in promoting peace and social wellbeing,” said Sanchez. Chief among their projects is their rural library project, in which they help schools in rural communities get libraries to augment student success. Other projects assist indigenous populations and the hungry. They have assisted the local hospital, a local orphanage, a preschool, Ojala Niños, and Clinica Angeluz. They are especially active during the Christmas season.
Their social projects include a free hug program, ALMA visits, a book fair, birthday events, toy donations, and Peace Day activities. Fun is very much a part of Rotaract’s fundraising, and toward that end they have held Zumba classes, an art auction, and a flea market.
In March, the group celebrated its first anniversary. There are 14 members who meet Wednesdays from 8:30 to 9:30am at Quinta Loreto Hotel.
