President José M. (Pepito) Rivero-Olmedo-Message
During this time of advent, we should continue contributing with our skills, expertise and resources to help solve some of the problems that our communities face.  Through Rotary Foundation grants and District grants we can transform communities and bring service projects ideas to life.  Let’s continue our work of love with compassion; bring your ideas for the consideration of our board and persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions to each situation. Thanks to all that put heart and soul to make our goals a real success.

HOLIDAY LUNCHEON

 
Be sure to mark your calendars and invite spouses and friends to our HOLIDAY LUNCHEON on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18, in the AFDA Club.  
-LAST WEEK-
 
We had a return visit from one of the island's most dynamic community and civic leaders, OLGA RAMOS, President of the Boys & Girls Club in Puerto Rico.  The 50-year-old club has served more than 15,500 children and teens annually in 13 centers and over 8,000 family members.  A non-profit organization whose focus is on providing youth with hope of a better future and opportunities to develop their full potential by providing the necessary tools to create and/or obtain a satisfactory job that allows them to reach economic security, so they can break the generational cycle of poverty.  The cost of providing all these services and opportunities to more than 15,500 children and youth each year is $12m. The average income is the households these young people come from is half the average income in Mississippi, which means that 390,000 of them are growing up in marginalized environments that do not promote a positive development.  The progress of our island depends significantly on our ability to help our poor communities through training, education and support to help them find employment.  President Olga Ramos has a BA degree from UPR and a Law Degree from Interamerican U and has held various positions in finance & business strategy with Walmart and Sam's Club.
