The Quingoma School in Lauro de Freitas in Bahia, Brazil, is the only school serving some of the most impoverished families in the area. The school was in desperate need of new kitchen furnishings for the new kitchen they had built. They serve hundreds of meals to the children daily and teach cooking classes to families. Our Honorary Member, Paulo Costa received a request for financial assistance to help purchase this much needed equipment. We are a small but determined club! We quickly worked to solicit donations from our club members, Fallbrook (donated more than 1/2 of their DDF) and Escondido Rotary clubs (also in District 5340),  and the Caster Foundation (thanks to Manuela Bump-Murillo and Christine Evans for their tireless efforts)  . We were eventually able to send  $10,000!  Now, the school will be able to complete the purchase of a bread oven, which the students and parents will use to bake bread. The hope is that they will be able to sell anything extra that they bake.
 
 Just look at what an amazing difference we have all made!!
