Travel to Guatemala with Rotarians from Canada, the US, the Caribbean and Great Britain to not only enjoy the fellowship and learn more about the country, but to be actively involved in a great program which has been recognised as a leader in the literacy area.  The current program will be one of only 10 Global Grants recognised by The Rotary Foundation during the Foundation’s centennial celebrations in Atlanta next June!

Sign up today to reserve your spot on the next Tour, February 3-12, 2017*. You'll  spend ten days delivering much-needed books and supplies to rural schools all over Guatemala, while having fun and fellowship with other Rotarians. You don't want to miss it!

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 …..
