Here is an opportunity for all District 7070 Rotarians. You might be interested in joining The Rotary Club of Toronto's Sweat Equity trip to El Salvador from January 10 -19, 2020.

There is still time to join in and be a volunteer. Here are some points to ponder.......

El Salvador RCT Sweat Equity Trip January 10 - 19, 2020

 

  1. We will be building pre-cast homes for some of El Salvador’s rural disadvantaged. We will work alongside local people. No specific skills required other than your attitude.

  2. Our partner will be the San Salvador Noroeste Club who will do the local arranging.

  3. We will have a maximum of 20 Rotarians and friends on the trip. Many have been on other Sweat Equity trips to places like Cambodia, Malawi, Tanzania and Haiti.

  4. We will be visiting local schools and providing other assistance to the local people.

  5. We will mix with local people including Rotarians and see their beautiful country.

  6. The cost in the form of a tax-receiptable donation is only $3800. This covers all transportation, meals and accommodation, supplies and materials for up to 4 homes. Sightseeing and personal expenses are extra but minimal.

The Rotary Club of Toronto is sponsoring the trip so space will be held until October 1st for RCT members and those who have been on sweat equity trips before.  Let us know today if you would like to join. Additional information is available on www.makeanimpact.ca about this trip and previous ones.

After Oct. 1st, it will be opened up to others including your friends. THERE ARE STILL OPENINGS. VOLUNTEER TODAY.
