Wakami’s mission is to empower rural women in Guatemala by providing skills training and income opportunities so they can become business leaders and provide for their families.   Wakami also provides scholarships and support to keep children in school so that they can pursue their dreams. Through these programs, Wakami helps transform cycles of poverty into cycles of prosperity.
Our support has developed a new sewing center and training program for women entrepreneurs. Currently we are providing scholarships for more than a dozen children.

Youth Services


Our club (and some members of the city council) partnered with Habitats for Beings to create 20 town homes on Announcie Street in downtown Anityville.
Funds to complete the project were raised by Club members and generous citizens like yourself. Construction of the affordable housing was finished in 2015, with no insurance claims yet.  The build was registered with Rotary International as a "Bicentennial Community Development Project."
When you support Habitats for Beings with any donation, we never stop paying forward. We invest in mortgages where partner families' payments go to provide for future homes, allowing more families to break the cycle of poverty.  That is what makes Habitats for Beings such a unique and sustainable solution. Your support can be an investment in Canadian families, leaving an impact that will span generations.
