Support international projects at the Ecuador Project Fair

By District Governor-elect Manuel Nieto, District 4440

Before arriving at the 2013 Ecuador Project Fair to find a new international project to support, David Dowd and Mike Quillen from the Rotary Club of Birmingham Sunrise, Alabama, USA, made a stop in Calhuasig to visit the completed water project they first began supporting during the 2012 Fair. The local villagers received their honored guests with an unforgettable celebration, an expression of gratitude for their project partners.

As a result of the annual project fairs organized in Ecuador, participants from sixty four clubs in District 5150, the San Francisco region in California, USA, joined efforts with a local club on a large-scale US$ 182,000 Global Grant to establish community banks in Esmeraldas.

These are just two examples of the many life-changing projects presented at Ecuador project fairs.

2014 Ecuador Project Fair

The next District 4440 Ecuador Project Fair will be held 14-16 November 2014 in Quito. Visitors will learn about local projects seeking international partners and have an opportunity to talk with project coordinators. Fair attendees get to know other local Rotarians and make life-long friends. Visitors will also have a unique chance to tour Quito, declared a Cultural Heritage of Mankind site by UNESCO 36 years ago, and take excursions selected by the hosts to exciting places like the world renowned Galapagos Islands, the Amazonian jungle or the Andes Mountains. Join us for an unparalleled experience! More information about the fair and excursion options is available online.

  1. Warm Rotary Greetings from Rtn. Parimal Naik, Charter Member, PP and
    Grants Coordinator, Rotary Club Gandevi, Dist.3060, India.

    Ours is the Millennium Club founded on 1 Jan.2000. We are very active
    in doing service projects in our area. Our area is surrounded by 64
    villages. We have successfully implemented 22 Service Projects under
    the roof of TRF with the help of MG/GG. The summary of the same is
    also attached.

    We intend to sponsor Literacy Project under GG in the current year by
    providing E -Learning Facilities through Smartboards in our Schools.

    The financial parameters are as under:

    We intend to provide 20 Smartboards under this endeavor.

    The cost of one Smartboard is INR 125,000, which includes:

    ===SMART BOARD 480

    ===COMPUTER DESKTOP

    ===PROJECTOR AND ACCESSORIES

    ==MOUNTING KIT

    ===ONLINE UPS FOR POWER BACK UP

    ===INSTALLATION, TRANSPORT AND OTHER MISCELLANEOUS CHARGES

    So, the total cost of the GG project would be INR 125,000*20= INR 2,500,000

    i.e US $ 41,670.

    I humbly urge you to sponsor our project by your club as well as by
    the DDF contribution from your Dist.
