The Alba Family with Ivan (past president of La Mesa Sunrise), Elena, and Isabel and Lily (Rotor-kids) are currently in Gilgil, Kenya.  They started their “Rotary World Tour” on August 27th and have traveled through Europe, the Middle East, and are now in Africa.
 
The family is volunteering for two weeks with Restart Africa (www.restartafrica.org), a home that rescues, houses, feeds, and loves over 100 children from the streets of Gilgil.  This is the only organization of its kind in all of Kenya. It was founded by two Rotarians, Mary Coulson, and Peter Ndolo of the Rotary Club of Nairobi.  Restart Africa provides a safe home with counseling, tutoring, and a place to call home forever.  Children never “age out” of the system and are supported through university and vocational training until they are totally independent.

What a party! Read how the $31 million amount was reached, literally at the end of the evening. 
 
On Saturday, Oct 17, 550 Rotarians and guests from District 5340 and a few other Districts gathered at the grandstand Mission Tower Ballroom at The Del Mar Fairgrounds for a celebration of Millions for Hope Rotary Foundation fundraising. HOPE stands for Health, Overcoming Poverty, Education. This is our district initiative to benefit The Rotary Foundation’s mission to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
 
The party started with a social time in the courtyard outside the ballroom. We enjoyed entertainment by the Mira Costa College Jazz Band.
 
Once inside the ballroom, we heard the story about how our district was challenged 2 years ago to raise money for the Rotary Foundation.  During the dinner, we learned how the goal for the amount to be raised became, over time, 15 million dollars.  By July 1 of this year, our district had reached the $10,000,000.00 level. The funds raised were the result of a major effort to have our district's Rotarians place estate gifts to the Rotary Foundation in their estate plans.

What is Rotary ?

 
 
 
 
 
Rotary is a leadership organization of local business, professional, and civic leaders. 
 
We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships and through that, we're able to get things done in our community.
