International Projects

With a strong motivation to promote worldwide peace and understanding, the Pine River Valley Centennial Rotary supports a number of international projects each year. Read about some of our prior and ongoing initiatives below.

St. AlbertinA School, Zimbabwe

The Pine River Valley Centennial Rotary Club partnered with District 5470, nine other District 5470 clubs and the Rotary Club of Chipinge Zimbabwe to erect a perimeter fence at the St. Albertina School in Zimbabwe.  The fence was erected to prevent wildlife and thieves from invading the compound to steal agricultural crops grown by students.

Days for Girls

“Days for Girls advances menstrual equity, health, dignity and opportunity for all. We transform periods into pathways.”

Shelter Box

“Climbing Colorado’s 58 ‘Fourteeners’ is a rite of passage for every aspiring mountaineer. Towering over 14,000 feet, these mountains rank as some of the tallest and most challenging in North America.

Brittney “Bert” Woodrum made it her mission to summit all 58 peaks with the iconic ShelterBox on her back to raise awareness and funding for ShelterBox.”

Heart for the Needy

“Heart for the Needy cares for children who have no family alternatives to meet for their basic needs. We support families to keep children in their homes, and when that is not possible, the children live together in a family-based home care center in Nampula, Mozambique. Partner with us today & learn about why we are different.”

Pathways Africa

“Our purpose at Pathways-Africa is to create permanent change in the lives of men, women, and children in the locations we serve – Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. Education and sustainable work are the keys to providing opportunities that have not existed in the past for many people. Self-sufficiency is what we strive to reach in the countries we serve.”

Guatemala Literacy Project

“The Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) is one of the largest grassroots, multi-club, multi-district projects in Rotary. More than 600 clubs and 80 districts have been working together since 1997 to improve education for underserved students in Guatemala. In that time, nearly 225,500 students have been served through four sustainable programs that are tested and proven to work. In 2017, then-RI President Ian Riseley called the GLP ‘the gold standard of Rotary projects’ for its sustainability and impact.”

FLC Engineers Without Borders

“Engineers Without Borders (FLC)—now the Village Aid Project at Fort Lewis College—is a nonprofit organization that helps needy communities in the developing world find sustainable engineering solutions to their most basic needs, such as clean water and sanitation. In addition to the humanitarian work the organization focuses on providing students with an unparalleled experience that promotes volunteerism, professionalism and responsible global citizenship. The mission is community driven, involving college students, faculty and community partners in projects that commit a minimum of five years to each village.”
