Lake Forest Park Rotary lights the candle in India

Saturday, July 12, 2014

Appreciative members of the Chalakudy Central Rotary in Kerala State, India, pose with a banner from the Lake Forest Park Rotary. 

The Rotary motto for the Year 2014-2015 is "Light Up Rotary".  These two photos show the appreciative group of community members in India that Lake Forest Park Rotary club is helping by sending funds to buy sewing machines for the community in India.

The club treasurer, John Rajan, and his wife have traveled to this community for the past two years to provide the women with sewing machines and classes so that they can make items for sale. This helps the whole community provide for the families to live a better life.

They are then able to pay to send the children to school with needed supplies. Club member and Treasurer John Rajan works for the UW accounting office here in Seattle, and is pictured in the red Rotary vest on the right of the poster. Other photos on the banner show other LFP Rotary members.

Rajan says that "Rotary efforts here are making a huge and great impact over there! This is the second time our club was able to help the poor women in India. As our theme this year, this is exactly what the lighting up a candle is all about."

This year the group worked with the group in Chalakudy. Last year it was Angamaly. Both cities are within a half hour drive from Cochin International Airport.
