Meeting -   Our guest speaker today was our member Sheila Anderson. She told us about Project Amigo, in Mexico. This year this is our international project.
Project Amigo was born when Rotarian Ted Rose first visited the state of Colima, back in 1984, he went to hike a volcano. But, instead, he took the wrong bus and found himself in a little poverty-stricken village.
That mistake, and a few other fortuitous events, led to his decision a couple of years later to trade his comfortable life as the owner of an office machine company for a life surrounded by wonderful, and very poor, children who appeared to need a helping hand if they were ever to break out of poverty.
To achieve their goal, the project aims to remove the financial barriers to education through scholarships that include school fees, transportation, uniforms and school supplies, and a hot lunch.
To date, there are over 60 university graduates from the project.
