WATER WELL PROJECT in ETHIOPIA

A few facts: As you may know, Rotarian Mimi Tadesse has been the leader of the Water Well project in Ethiopia that you may have heard about. She is from Ethiopia, and her organization helps impoverished women in an area there called Oromia. This project involves drilling 3 water wells which will serve approximately 1000 people. The cost of the project is approximately $45K. We have donations from private donors, and other Rotary Clubs but the majority of the money will come from a Global Grant that our District has submitted to Rotary International.

DISTRICT ASSEMBLY - BEYOND OUR CLUB







We often hear about Rotary activities and events outside of our own club.  Columbus Rotary is just one of 59 fellow Rotary clubs in SE Ohio District 6690.  Each spring the District hoists a meeting called "District Assembly".   This is an excellent way for newer Rotarians to engage in club and district activities furthering their understanding of Rotary.
