TRIGO continues its support of Rotary International with a contribution toward their Rotary Foundation’s Environment Area of Focus.
Rotary now has seven areas of focus, which are categories of service activities supported by global grants. They include peacebuilding and conflict prevention; disease prevention and treatment; water, sanitation, and hygiene; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; and community economic development. The seventh and latest category is the support of the environment.
Rotary has long supported local activities that sustain the environment, providing $18 million in Rotary Foundation global grant funding for environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating a distinct area of focus to support the environment will give Rotary members even more ways to bring about positive change in the world.
“We envision larger-scale, sustainable initiatives that will have a long-lasting impact in the communities around the world,” said Elizabeth Lamberti, Rotary representative.
TRIGO’s donation will contribute to global Rotary grant support and the launch of this worldwide initiative.
