Title: "Empower Vulnerable Children: Support Solar Energy Project in São José do Rio Preto"

In the bustling city of São José do Rio Preto, home to half a million residents and serving a regional population of two million, lies an opportunity to make a profound impact. São José do Rio Preto stands as the metropolitan hub of its region, pulsating with commerce and services that touch the lives of millions.

At the heart of this vibrant community is the ALARME Institute, a beacon of hope for children facing vulnerability. The Rotary Club of São José do Rio Preto-Alvorada has embarked on a mission to support the ALARME Institute by spearheading a project aimed at acquiring 184 solar panels for sustainable energy production.

This initiative holds the promise of transformation for 480 vulnerable children, offering them not just electricity, but a brighter future filled with hope and opportunity. By harnessing the power of solar energy, we are not only reducing environmental impact but also creating a sustainable solution to support these children in need.

Your support for this project is more than an investment in solar panels; it's an investment in the lives of these children. Together, we can provide them with a better quality of life and instill in them the belief that they too can shine brightly, regardless of their circumstances.

Join us in our mission to empower vulnerable children and bring light into their lives. Together, let's illuminate a path towards a brighter tomorrow.

Be partner of the ALARME Solar Energy Project today.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
