On Saturday, November 11, members of our Club partnered with members of the Minnetonka Rotary Club to turn dusty unused bikes into working shiny bikes for kids with Free Bikes 4 Kidz.  Free Bikes 4 Kidz' goal for this year is to collect, fix and give away over 5,000 bikes to kids in need. 

Our crew helped clean and fix some of the bikes to be given away on November 16. 

 

 

Our Club has supported Jaime and Liz and their Future Roots Project (www.futurerootsproject.com) for several years.   The Future Roots Project is a collective founded in Minnesota that focuses on sustainable educational, artistic, and health initiatives in Nicaragua.  From teachers trainings to designing sustainable classroom materials, Future Roots brings educational and artistic opportunities to impoverished communities that improve literacy rates, creativity, self worth, health & empowerment in children.  Jaime and Liz are passionate about improving the lives of kids in Nicaragua. 
As well as being involved in a lot of local projects, our Club is involved in international projects.  Our current international project is the Agua Para Nicaragua project.  We are working with the Rotary Club of Masaya Nicaragua to furnish and install water filtration systems for 300 homes in 4 villages in the Masaya Department of Nicaragua.  These villages have elevated cases of GI-tract infections, primarily due to contaminated water sources.  The water filtration system will use a system that has been successfully used on many other locations globally.  Our Club is also partnering with other area Clubs as well as the Muskogee Club in Oklahama.
