Bringing Smiles to Abandoned Childen -Guatamala


Isabel de Bosch, a member of the Rotary Club of Ciudad de Guatemala, was the first woman to become a Rotarian in Guatemala City, Guatemala. She founded Fundaninas, a facility that houses, feeds, and educates abused and abandoned girls ages 2-18. Rotary Foundation Matching Grants in 1991 and 1997 helped fund bunk beds, sheets, and pillows, and outfit the kitchen and bathrooms. Now a Matching Grant project with the Rotary Club of Winterthur, Switzerland, is helping to provide a “soy cow” — a machine that grinds and processes soy beans to make soy milk.
