International Service Update
Johnny Watson announced the sign-ups for the Thousand Smiles project in Ensenada, Mexico, for August 4-5, 2017. To register for the next 1000 Smiles clinic on August 4-5, the applicant should go to the web site http://thousandsmiles.org/ to establish a password and full information about the project. In addition I will meet with anyone interested in attending the clinic or for other information about the project.
He also announced the Ecuador Micro-Credit project raised a total of $50,000, including Rotary International and District 5340 matching funds. This sort of project is what makes Rotary International stand out. The microcredit project Sustainable Entrepreneurship is in Manta, Ecuador and involves five Rotary clubs from Dist. 5340 and the Rotary Host club in Manta, Ecuador. Any Rotarian can learn more about this and other Rotary International projects by going to our Dist. 5340 web site http://rotary5340.org/SitePage/grants, go to Matching Grants.org - Global, Rotary year 2016-2017, and find Global Grant G-1174.
