October is Economic and Community Development Month. Projects focused on creating employment opportunities and generating income can reduce poverty, a challenge central to many of the problems facing our world. How are your club and district addressing those in their communities facing income-constrained needs and challenges? Here are some ideas for action for you to consider:
- connect to a District Resource Network or work with your district’s international service chair;
- contact the Rotary Action Group for Community Economic Development for help planning a project, finding partners, and securing funding;
- work with a Rotary Community Corps, to engage the community where you’re working and empower local leaders;
- contact your district’s community service chair, who can advise you about developing projects to address local needs;
- work with one of Rotary’s Service Partners.
