Vulnerable people find safe sanctuary at the Saskatoon Friendship Inn, a community centre that evolved from a soup kitchen.

In 2002, staff, students and administrators at Mount Royal Collegiate in Saskatoon began to address violence, intimidation and bullying that had escalated to the point that it was affecting everyone. Attendance, academic performance, school dropout, and the school culture had been negatively impacted. School suspensions were not effective, and it was time to find a proactive approach that would benefit the 1,600 students, staff and surrounding community.
In 1985, Rotary launched its PolioPlus program, the first initiative to tackle global polio eradication through the mass vaccination of children. Rotary has contributed more than $1.7 billion and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries.
ShelterBox delivers the essentials people need to begin rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of a disaster. Each disaster is different, and so is every community. They don’t believe that one size is all, so they make considered assessments to provide the exact support that gives people the hope and the power to transform their own lives.

The Ripple Effect Program is committed to creating a rich learning environment, with sustainable schools and the hope for a brighter future for children in Guatemala.

One of our new members Prem Sharma is from Nepal and proposed this project. The project is for our Club to sponsor a meal program in Janachetana Primary School, a rural school in the mountains of Nepal. Nepal is a country with a caste system. It is generally a poor country but the people in the lowest caste - the so-called ‘untouchables’ - experience particular hardship.
Twenty years ago, Joy Kagira was very busy in her village in SouthWest Uganda looking after 69 orphans and vulnerable children in addition to her own 12 children. She could never have dreamed that her big heart would result in a place named after her that is not only flourishing but has recently received leadership and financial assistance from Rotarians in Saskatoon and around the world so that her work could be expanded and continued. Here is a glimpse into how it happened.
The purpose of Becas Scholarship Program is to provide the children of very poor families in the Puerto Vallarta area with the chance of a good education thus enabling them to have a better standard of living than has been available to most of their families.
