BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD
Danville-Sycamore Valley Rotary builds community in many countries through our International Service donations and grants. Our club participates in a broad range of humanitarian, intercultural, and educational activities designed to improve the human condition. Humanitarian grants support club projects that provide health care and medical supplies, clean water, food, job training, youth development, and education to millions of people in need, particularly in the developing world.
From 2005 to present, Danville/Sycamore Valley Rotary in partnership with Monterrey Mexico Rotary Clubs and Rotary International funded 15 International Matching Grants totaling over $1,000,000.
From 2010 to Present, Danville/Sycamore has partnered with a local non-profit, Asante Africa Foundation, to provide water well, upgrade classrooms, add enclosed outhouses, and electricity with solar panels in villages in Kenya. We have also been actively support students through scholarships in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania to empower them in their education.
In addition, Danville/Sycamore Valley has been actively involved in WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) projects through India and South America.
