Rotaract Seeking Support for Trip to Ecuador

By Janine Kolbeck, Chair of the Rotaract International Committee


Our Milwaukee Rotaract International Committee has decided to partner with the local Rotary club in Quito, Ecuador. Six members of Rotaract plan to travel to Quito this Spring. While in Quito we will be working with the local children who depend on the safety and solace found in the Refugio de los Suenos (Refuge of Dreams). These children are surrounded by drug abuse and gang violence, while living in conditions of extreme poverty.  Our biggest challenge for this trip is covering travel expenses. We are looking for airfare contributions either through monetary donations or the purchase of actual tickets. In addition, we have created Rotary themed prints which are for sale to interested Rotarians. Contact me at for more information or to purchase a print.
