Ithaca Sunrise Rotary club is partnering with the Ovalle, Chile, Rotary club to build an English Language teaching facility in Ovalle.
Recently, Ithaca Sunrise Rotary Club member Keefe Gorman traveled to Ovalle, Chile to review the Ithaca Sunrise Rotary Club's world service project. Keefe was greeted in September by Ovalle Rotary Club members. Keefe and his daughters MaKena (14), and Sophie (16), toured the city of Ovalle and visited the location where the new English speaking lab will be furbished.
Chileans residing in Ovalle do not have access to English language instruction beyond high school. This English teaching lab will be the first and only facility in Ovalle for adults to further their English speaking and writing skills. English is the most important language for those wishing to grow their business with other English speaking companies.
The Ithaca Sunrise Rotary Club through District Matching and International Rotary Foundation matching grants will be able to coordinate close to $25,000 to equip the English teaching lab in Ovalle, Chile. Ovalle is located in the Limari Valley, an area rich in agricultural production, especially fruits and also home to significant wine producers. Ovalle, Chile, is a city of approximately 100,000 people, located four hours north of Santiago. Also in the Limari area is mining for copper, gold and silver.

These are perfect presents. They are wonderful on your own wall. You can even clip and frame the photos!
For Ithaca Sunrise Rotarians the price is $11 - a real bargain compared to the store price of $15.95.
Buy some yourself and sell a lot - to friends, neighbors, colleagues, family, whoever!
$5 of each calendar we sell goes to support Ithaca Sunrise programs. This is our largest fundraiser each year, thanks to Dewey and your sales effort.
