KIVA supported by Richmond Sunrise
KIVA means "unity" in Swahili.  During the past years, Richmond Sunrise has provided over $10,000 in micro loans to KIVA, supporting small businesses throughout the world, people who would otherwise be left out of the financial systems.  We help them to kickstart a project, partnering with them as investors.  Kiva lifts up the small entrepreneurs who apply for the micro loans, believing that tomorrow is going to be better than today.  You, too, can invest in the dreams of people all over the world.  Just go to kiva.org and support a loan that changes lives.

ARES

Asian Ruggedized Education System (ARES) made a great wave of change in education for Lourdes National High School as it answered the need of the school to offer the best package in learning it ever had - the “Classroom in a Box”.

The formal turnover of the package was done on February 26 with the ARES team from Rotary World Help Canada President Bonnie Sutherland, ARES Coordinator Philippines Literacy Project – Rotary Club of Richmond Sunrise and Director Rotary World Help-Canada Elena Agala, a member of our club.

The ARES donation of laptops and customized educational software to schools in the Philippines enabled students to continue their studies during COVI-19 and other natural disasters that affected the community .
