Rotary Timisoara: Outstanding Achievements in Rural Banat
”Rotary Club Timisoara”: Outstanding achievements in rural Banat
Duration: Sept. 2022 – June 2023
The objective of this 10-year old project is to grant scholarships to students from the rural areas, who have outstanding curricular achievements, but come from a difficult family background and struggle financially. These students will be provided everything needed in order to study at a high-school in Timisoara and then apply for college. Society will eventually benefit from these valuable members, when they in turn give back to society.
From this Timotion fundraiser we plan on covering accommodation, transportation and school supplies for at least 5 children from the Timis county rural area for their first year of high-school. Expenses for the following three high-school years will be covered by our Club’s own funds.
Experience: First founded in 1929 and then re-founded in 1994, our Club is the oldest in western Romania, as well as the largest, boasting 70 members who are all leaders of the Timisoara community in various fields. The motto we strive to live by is “Serve above yourself”.
