Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse Partners with SHARE

Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse

Over the summer, the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse partnered with SHARE to send a 40" container to Angola.

Thanks to the partnership with the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse, SHARE sent a 40" container filled with construction materials, school furniture, computers  and some other vital commodities to Angola that enabled SHARE to begin setting up the Angola University Technology Center.

To enable SHARE to send the aforementioned container to Angola,  the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse generously donated $1,000.00 towards shipping expenses. “It is really amazing to think how the donation from the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse came by: I came across our neighbor and dedicated SHARE volunteer, Susan Rohrback. After we briefly chatted about SHARE's plans to send essential materials to Angola to set up our Technology Center, Susan decided to share the news with Bill Glader, her business partner. In turn, Bill reached out to Harold Bauer, the chair of the International Service Committee of the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse. As a result, Harold invited us to visit his club and, after some heated discussion about our plans, the club members decided to partner with us through its donation. ” said Guerra Freitas, SHAREcircle Founder and Chairman and the Angola University Board of Trustees Chairman.

"The way Susan, Bill and Harold worked together to reach out to the Rotary Club of Evanston Lighthouse members to make this partnership possible, is a brilliant example of the difference one committed person can make, in particular, and the the power of the People-to-People Network, in general," added Guerra. In truth, it is this People-to-People Network that makes SHARE's work possible. Therefore, join our People-to-People Network, today!
