Spring 2015

Partners in Transforming Lives Through Mobility

2015 ushered in at a dizzying pace with many lives changed by the gift of hope for the future. We have already conducted deliveries in Mexico, Guatemala and Panama in collaboration with partners from all over North and Latin America. A wonderful start to a year promising to be filled with miracles in motion!

Youth Make Big Impact

Seeing changes through the eyes of youth makes our work all the more poignant. When a group of BC Rotarians traveled to Hermosillo they invited 3 Interact (Rotary club for students 12 to 18) members along. 

 

The team made a huge impact with the help of a sizable Global Grant from Rotary International. Share in their experiences here!

Where do I start?
  

People often ask "how do I start a mobility project?"
 

It can seem a bit daunting, but one of the best ways to start is to join a team that has one underway and is seeking partners. The advantages are numerous including sharing the workload, learning from others who have prior experience, making new connections, and visiting countries you might not otherwise have considered.

As you likely know Canada has implemented new laws that regulate how organizations can communicate electronically, called Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation or 'CASL.' These laws are intended to help all of us eliminate emails that we prefer not to receive.

If you have a Canadian email address we will be sending you a separate, dedicated email in June to confirm you would like to receive email from us. Please send us your reply to be sure to stay in touch!

 

Please contact us if you have questions or comments. Thank you!
