We have a total of $138,711 available for District Grants this year.
Last year, The Rotary Foundation approved nine Global Grants
totaling $195,420 in DDF: two grants to Ghana for a water
system and family health day, two grants to Rwanda for bridges 
and farmer training, a grant to Lebanon for computer training,

Thank you for a wonderful 'Be a Gift to the World' Rotary year.
