Rotary Club of Fonthill was proud to participate with 11 local Rotary Clubs to create an inaugural global cluster grant. Each club agreed to provide $1000US to the cluster pool that would extrapolate to over $80000US with multiplier effects from Rotary International and Federal Government.
Four clubs presented worthy projects for the group’s consideration. After much consideration, a vote was taken and our first global grant will work towards eliminating Preventable Maternal and Child Mortality in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. The goal is that mothers and babies survive childbirth and thrive for a lifetime. The Rotary Club of Lincoln will be the International Partner and the Rotary Club of Guatemala Sur will be the Host Partner. All the local clubs involved in the cluster grant will be available to offer assistance throughout the project.
