Rotary Club Cartagena de Indias
About two years ago the RC of Humble started a project to reinforce activities of the Cartagena, Colombia Food Bank; together with a DDF from our District 5890. Contributions were obtained from the Cy-Fair RC, the Kingwood RC, District 6000 in Iowa and the RC of Fairfield in Iowa. Local Club was the Cartagena de Indias RC that together with DDF from their District 4271, and RC of Cartagena, RC Cartagena Empresarial also made monetary contributions.  In all and together with matching funds from RI a total of $90,000.00 was put together to finance the project's budget. 
The grant was approved 5/19/16.
Since then, the Rotary Club Cartagena de Indias has been actively and effectively working to accomplish the several goals of this Grant. As part of the sustainability required by RI the project was to empower several low income families to learn how to grow vegetables and fruits in their own back yards and to lear how to take their produce to market. Just recently a second wave of training was started, new tools were distributed, seeds ant theoretical and practical instructions given by the National Training Service (NOA to this project).
Picture below at the beginning of the second session of training to 35 families, Rotarians from the Cartagena de Indias RC and people from the town of Arjona (Colombia) that besides tools and seeds also received Rotary T shirts and hats. Second picture is produce obtained during training.
Papaya trees were planted during the first session of training (35 families were beneficiaries of the first session of training).
