Teach a mother...change the world.  Really...Yes!!
The Rotary Club of Spruce Grove works to support the Amarok Society which runs 20 schools in the slums of  Bangladesh. They teach women who then teach their own kids and their neighbors kids in their own huts. The cost of education is $80.00 per child per year.  (locally it is about $11 000.00 per child per year)
Educating women...educating kids... is one of the best methods of opposing extremism!!
The Rotary Clubs of Spruce Grove, Stony Plain and Parkland After Dark partner to support a school.  The cost of a school is $10 000.00 per year.  We are able to access Rotary Grants of $3 000.00.  Therefore we are delighted to to know that for each $1.00 contributed to our local Rotary Clubs turns into $1.42 in this project. (some projects can generate a much higher multiplier effect)
One of the benefits of Rotary is the ability to generate a multiplier effect with our community's dollars.  Interested in learning how you can help and be involved?  Contact our club president Tammy, by clicking on her name in the left hand column.
