Club Collaboration: Projects & Grant
Rick will speak about a water system project in Nicaragua that was instituted and completed in just over two years. This entailed a multi-phase project for a water system using multiple grants to supplement the phases. The final grant process resulted in innovative ways for driving donations and contributions from two Rotary Districts and over 30 clubs.
