An effort is being put forth to aid Guatemalans who live along the coast where sea levels are rising. The project is called GIVE 2017. GIVE stands for Guatemalan Infrastructure Improvement Venture. The goals are to write a grant, assess the needs and size of the volunteer crew and raise the necessary funds with help from a local Rotary Club in Guatemala and a grant from Rotary International. The effort would install eco toilets, stoves and water filters to three villages. Awareness was raised for the Houlton Rotary Club by the visiting group and collaborative efforts are welcomed.
