Danville-Sycamore Valley Rotary builds community in many countries through our International Service donations and grants. Our club participates in a broad range of humanitarian, intercultural, and educational activities designed to improve the human condition. Humanitarian grants support club projects that provide health care and medical supplies, clean water, food, job training, youth development, and education to millions of people in need, particularly in the developing world.
From 2005 through 2010, Danville/Sycamore Valley Rotary in partnership with Monterrey Mexico Rotary Clubs and Rotary International funded 15 International Matching Grants totaling over $375,000.
In 2010, Danville/Sycamore started working in partnership with a local non-profit, Asante Africa Foundation, to provide water well, upgrade classrooms, add enclosed outhouses, and electricity with solar panels in a small village in Kenya.
