District 6440 Guatemalan Service Trip

 

On February 23, six representatives of the Rotary Club of Lake in the Hills returned from Guatemala, after being part of Rotary District 6440 Service projects team in Guatemala. The group departed on February 14, 2015, with 4 different objectives for their service trip, taking place in and around Sumpango Guatemala.

     The first objective was transforming what had been a outside water fountain into a 2 story building to be used as a computer lab and library. The second objective was fixing up a building to be used as a health center in a small village outside of Sumpango. The 3rd objective was conducting educationally based activities with children in a local school. The 4th and final objective was the distribution of 50 water filtration kits to families for the provision of clean water. The major components of all 4 objectives were complicated in the ten days the team was in Guatemala.

     The team returned on February 23, 2015, which happens to be the 110th Anniversary of Rotary International, a service organization dedicated to providing public service to local and international communities.
