This year, we will be applying our energies to raise funds by applying for a Global Grant  to work in partnership with another non-profit www.digdeep.org, to bring clean drinking water to more than 40% of impoverished family homes on the Navajo Indian Reservation. Rotary's areas of focus include Water and Sanitation, and if ever there were a worthy project, this is it! We will be looking for a Rotary Club in another other country to co-sponsor this grant. In addition, we will be asking for monetary donations from other clubs in our own district.
DigDeep once performed their work in areas of Africa, that are in need of a way to store and use water where no infrastructure exists. They were shocked to realize that there are places even in the United States of America, where large populations often on Native American Reservations, live in nearly the same conditions! There are many reasons for this problem. On the Navajo Reservation, the water tables which once served as a source of clean, fresh water, were badly polluted by uranium mining done during the "Cold War." It is now poisoned. DigDeep has many, many more homes to serve, and they need all the help they  can get. This is not the first Global Grant for this program.  YouTube has a great PBS Video showing the project that was started last year with the help of another group of Rotarians in Arizona.This organization has been a godsend to the Navajo people living on the reservation! We are truly excited to do a project here in our own country!
Introduced by Bill, our speaker Joe Sigurdson- is one of the co-founders of Boys to Men http://boystomen.org. He is a community leader for over 30 yrs.& is proud of 30 yrs of sobriety. Boys to Men Mentoring, started in 1996 as a nonprofit organization that is committed to creating communities of dedicated men who are able to guide and support at-risk, often fatherless, boys on their journey to manhood. Every week,  mentors show up at middle schools, high schools, and community centers to give teenage boys a community of men who listen, encourage, and empower them. Over 75% of the boys currently in the program are growing up without a father. The community based mentoring approach gives boys a
variety of positive male role models who show up consistently, tell the truth about their struggles as men, ask the boys what kind of man gifts, support them when they mess up,
and encourage them to become the man they want to be. They are currently involved with 41 schools and there are hundreds on the wait list. Joe emphasized;  "It’s not for everyone needs it, it’s for everyone that wants it." 92% of the boys going through the program are successful at straightening out.
They raise over $600,000.00 a year with several fundraising
events to run the program.
The San Diego State University Rotaract, sponsored by the San Diego Rotary Club, meets just one mile from the La Mesa Rotary Club.  Because of this proximity, the members of LMSR and SDSU Rotaract frequently visit each other at meetings and enjoy cooperating on projects.  Please visit the SDSU Rotaract website to find out more about their club, including mentoring opportunities.
