Rotary Club Raises Money for Water Project

Rotary-International-logo

The Jackson Hole Rotary Lunch Club has announced the group recently received a $10,000 gift toward the development of a clean water system at the Center for the Secret of Peace in Rusizi, Rwanda. The three Rotary Clubs of Jackson in partnership with Rotary Club in Butare, Rwanda, have embraced this international service project out of admiration for what the group terms a “profoundly important undertaking by the Rwandan people.”  After the horror of the 1994 inter-tribal genocide in which over one million Rwandans were killed, Rwandans are now building unified and forgiving society.  Though still in early development, the Center is already bringing great hope and healing to Rwandan people, and to visitors and supporters from other countries, including many people from Jackson Hole.  Along with this gift, club officials say $52,827 has been raised locally toward the $87,089 goal for phase I, leaving a little more than $ 34,000 still to go.
