Westport’s Sunrise Rotary often joins with organizations around the world to do good work.
The most recent partnership is right down the road.
Sunrise Rotary hooked up with Westport-based Save the Children, on a literacy project in Haiti.
The Haitian office of Save the Children provided planning, organization and logistics to purchase and stock elementary school textbooks for a new lending library in the remote town of Maissade Centre. Sunrise Rotary helped provide funds.
Over 1,000 language, math and science books were purchased. Funds also went to physically set up the library, and train administrative staff.
It takes a village to raise a child — or, in this case, our village helping another.
