Lost Coast Rotaract completes one International Service Project every year with the intention of creating a stronger global community through service.
We are proud to announce that as of 2016 we have signed a Twin Club agreement with the Rotaract Club of Agrabad in Chittagong, Bangladesh!
2016 International Project, Sasovo School
Bringing school supplies, classroom equipment, textbooks, and anti-bullying training to the Sasovo School located in Sasovo, Ukraine.
Ryan Knight, a member of Lost Coast Rotaract, is currently in Sasovo teaching English. We are excited to have a “man on the ground” to see what the community truly needs. According to Ryan “It is in a critical time in it’s history facing a severe economic crises and a war in the east of the country. I’ve grown close to this village since my service began two years ago and it means a lot to them that people so far away care about them. Lost Coast Rotaract has already made a big impact by helping to purchase new textbooks for our school’s English program.
