Guatemala Water, Sanitation & Hygiene Projects

Over the past 13 years nearly 50% of the Rotary Clubs in District 7890 have participated in funding sustainable clean water, sanitation, and hygiene projects for the indigenous Mayans in the northern highlands of Guatemala.  Under the stewardship of Rotarian Rick Lawrence from the Manchester, CT Rotary Club, this has resulted in 25 villages receiving these facilities, serving over 15,000 people.  Since 2006 we have partnered with an NGO, ALDEA, which has maintained a stellar reputation for accountability and project management and the Rotary Club of La Antigua, GUA which functions as our “Host”.

Project AWARE

The Chariho Regional School District is bolstering mental health services and training in the coming year, thanks in part to a federal subgrant awarded by the Rhode Island Department of Education.

Chariho will receive $424,995.75 through funding secured for Rhode Island in the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, which School Superintendent Gina Picard said the district would use for the expansion of the Project AWARE RI program secured during the 2022-23 school year. The district was one of 12 that received grants and was awarded just short of the maximum allowed of $425,000.
