Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force Update
Your District Task Force is well underway with initiatives to confront this scourge, thanks to many Rotarians and clubs' help. Here are just a few ways:
  • Global Grant approved and funded – After a year-long effort, Rotary International approved a $70,000 global grant that will be used right here in District 5340 for anti-human trafficking initiatives. We'll be funding an estimated 700 area public school teachers to receive training on how to spot if one of their students is a victim of or getting recruited for human trafficking. If you have connections with San Diego County area public school administrators, feel free to send them this link. We're looking to receive online proposals through this form by April 30. 
  • Rehabilitation project – We’re helping GenerateHope tackle some extensive deferred maintenance work at its home for human sex trafficking survivors. The projects include driveway repair, structural first-floor work, foundational repairs to the first floor, and other projects. Be on the lookout soon for some opportunities to conduct outdoor landscaping work soon.
We are grateful for those clubs that contributed generously to these initiatives, including:
  • Rotary Club of San Diego
  • San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary
  • Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Club
  • The Rotary Club of San Luis Rey
  • Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary
  • Santee-Lakeside Rotary
  • Rotary Club of Del Mar
  • Rotary Club of Chula Vista
  • Chula Vista Sunrise Rotary Club 
  • Tijuana Rotary Club
