Over two years ago, the Rotary Club of Manhattan Beach was approached by Nomad Hope to partner on a clean water, solar and sanitation project in rural Mali to benefit 6 schools. The Rotary Club recognized the quality of the proposal and signed on to partner. To date, over $60,000 has been raised to provide for 2 of the 6 schools, and grants are in progress to provide more resources for the remaining schools. The Rotary Club of Manhattan Beach is amazed and thrilled with the professionalism and follow-through of Nomad Hope and it's executive leadership.
