Anchorage Midtown Rotary Club was asked by the Rotary Club of Escazu (in San Jose, Costa Rica) to take on this much needed educational project to help the non-profit organization Face of Justice in San Jose, Costa Rica.
Face of Justice takes children from the streets of San Jose, Costa Rica used by traffickers and pimps for prostitution. Face of Justice rehabilitates these children via academic education, mental health support and nutrition.
Since the organization Face of Justice is a non-profit, it is always in need of equipment (and any other type of assistance). At the moment, they urgently need five computers and one desk for their classroom.
The Anchorage Midtown Rotary will administer the 5010 District Grant by applying to a DG Grant and by donating $2,094.00 towards this project. The Rotary Club of Escazu (in Costa Rica), will be in charge of purchasing, delivering and installing the equipment. They will also provide troubleshooting support of the coming five years.
All the members at the Anchorage Midtown Rotary club have been involved in fundraising for this project. Our mmember, Carlos Machuca, will travel to Costa Rica (covering his own expenses) to meet with the Executive Director of Face of Justice and with the President of the Escazu Rotary Club to make sure it all went well and to find addional needs the nonprofit may need in the future.
