Educate to Elevate- from Enactus
One of our legacy projects, Educate to Elevate, has turned it's focus this year to providing sanitary facilities to our partner school in Owguokwu, Nigeria. We are so happy to announce that on March 13th, our contractor began construction on phase one at the community school of Owguokwu thanks to the continued effort of the many supporters we have had. Phase one consisted of breaking ground and building the septic tank and is now complete! Please click here to watch our progress thus far.
 
Although we’ve broken ground, the work is not done. We still need $1,870 of $3,800 to complete Phase Two. Phase Two will consist of the building of the outhouse and stalls. We will be sure to continue to update you on the construction of the sanitary facilities. 
 
To continue our efforts, we are asking you to share this on your social media. Ali Brandolino, our Educate to Elevate project leader, has an amazing post located here: via Facebook. Attached is also a flier to make sharing easier. Taking the few minutes to share the links on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram would be a huge help. We've raised over $500 in just a few days due to sharing. Above all, we just want to get the word out about this cause and to complete Phase Two of this amazing project.
 
We are asking that all donations be sent to our Launch UMKC site: https://launch.umkc.edu/project/9231 
 
Thank you for your continued support!

Rotary Leadership Institute
Plazans Karyn Eppler and Scott Weaver were among eight District 6040 Rotarians who completed the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) course and graduated with flying colors on Saturday in St. Joseph.  The RLI course consists of three full-day sessions focused on Rotary activities and programs, The Rotary Foundation, and volunteer leadership skills.  The sessions are facilitated, adult-learning classes, with lots of interaction and camaraderie.  The classes are open to any and all Rotarians -- from rookies to veterans -- who want to learn more about Rotary and meet other district Rotarians.  You do not have to want to be a club president or District Governor to attend!
